My take-home this time after a weekend with my parents was an exceedingly large pot for the garden. There isn’t currently a proper resting place for it, so it’s had to go next to the newest apple tree but I think it will be a good spot over the summer.
I’d been wondering how I was going to get all four of the tomato plants out before it was too late but now I have a partial solution: make a second mini hugel bed in the new pot. After all, it’s not as though there is a lack of woody material to fill it up with.
There won’t be any bokashi solids this time, even if I go like the clappers and eat rhubarb till it comes out my ears (rhubarb leaves are an excellent way of filling up the bokashi bin). However, I do have a voucher for £5 off at a garden centre, so I will get a bag of compost to supplement my own filling.
Anyway, we have found a new way to indulge in rhubarb. Tonight’s fare was a curry with the aforementioned, plus lentils and potato. It did taste a little tart to me but my daughter declared it to be peculiarly sweet. Which gives me some leverage when it comes to persuading her to eat it in crumble.
