I’ve totally up how much produce I got from the garden last year and by my estimations, had I bought this stuff it would have cost me £183.
The figure quoted above is down considerably on last year (2017’s was about £250). However, I didn’t even attempt to grow as much and the extended heatwave/drought, along with codling moth on the apples, put paid to a higher figure.
So, will I be able to achieve greater things in 2019? My forest garden should become more productive over time and I could also take greater advantage of what I already have. For example, how much hairy bittercress have I eaten this winter?
Starting to get a weekly portion of fruit and vegetables from the local community supported agriculture scheme has made me less inclined to forage in the garden. At the same time, we did take up the scheme as the night’s were closing in.
There’s no excuse not to go and pick some of that hairy bittercress this morning, though. There is glorious sunshine and mild temperatures, so we will also be going for a walk today.
What better way to start the new year. I hope you’re having a good day 😊.
