So after collecting 10 bin bags full I figured I'd better empty out the old stuff:
|All tucked up for winter|
I'm thinking I might put some blackcurrants in here, maybe some Titania? Any recommendations?
I moved the leaf sacks to the other side of the bath and put the leaves I have gathered in them. I also use Biotal Compost Maker with them which is supposed to help them break down quicker. And whilst it looks like a complete mess here at the top of the plot, this is a vast improvement to how it was at the start of the day! The plot slopes quite steeply here so is quite difficult to walk along here so I have leveled this part of the path past the leaves and generally got rid of a lot of the weeds
|There's a path here, honest!|
Finally the first Brussels of the 'season' were ready and eaten for tea, the first Brussels I've successfully grown:
|And very nice they were too!|
