I did a bit of work on Sunday but it is all a bit overrun. Preparing for winter is gonna be a big job. Although it's easier ripping everything out than planting! I trimmed the leeks, weeded them and the Broccoli and spring cabbage and fertilized them a bit. I added more straw and manure to the herb bed, I have cut the last of those now - sage, tarragon, thyme, mint, all dried up for winter.
We are eating the pak choy, the rhubarb chard and the last peppers. And waiting for the Brussel sprouts! I picked the tops off, and steamed them (they had aphids, beurk, but I managed to wipe them off), they taste very sprout-y.
Now I just have to find a big section of time to go down, rip out all the squash, weed it all and spread stable waste and manure, maybe some leaves if I can find a source. And I am still looking for some elusive chicken manure, that I would like to add in the spring. Friday I will pay a visit to the poultry man on the market...
