As of this week we’ve got a bit of an overflowing garden – I might have misjudged the size of my planter somewhat (spacial awareness is not my greatest skill). Currently growing we have;
- 4 different types of lettuce and rocket
- Spinach and Chard
- A variety of beans and peas (although the slugs love these so lots have been eaten!)
- Butternut Squash
- A selection of herbs
- Rhubarb (from my grandads garden, via my mums)
- Raspberries and blackberries that probably need another year to bed in!
But there are also some plants in the ground that are in it for the long haul – leeks, sprouts, cabbages, broccoli and some squashes! I guess I just need to keep them alive long enough for us to be able to enjoy them.
Now, if you have any tips for keeping plants alive over the winter, will you let me have them? Please!
