This morning I got out bright and early into the garden, the sun was shining and after giving everything everywhere a good water I planted out all my kohlrabi and some beetroots, while my husband made a basic netted frame to protect them from the pigeons.
Six of the eight vegetable beds are now populated, though I will still be adding some more companion plants. In addition to planting out the seedlings I direct sowed some mixed salad, little gem lettuces and radishes along the sides of the bed which will have a wide row of peas down the middle.
We have also had plenty of time this afternoon just sitting and relaxing outside. It was really warm again. Our main challenge at the moment seems to be making sure that everything gets enough water – we have had very little rain recently.
This evening, the home brew has reached the bottling stage.
