Some photos from Darrel’s allotment - at the top - garlic harvest, onions next - notice how both of them have been transplanted through biodegradable cornstarch much mats - very useful,

then beans and courgettes interplanted, and lettuces.

Spring growth - top photo taken in april, lower photo taken in may - of my front garden. I have 13 varieties of peas that I have growing in my front garden, plus lots of herbs, and some strawberries and salads…


This year  I have been doing lots of seed germination trials from the collection of seed I inherited off Richard Clare. I had good success with most of it, even managing to germinate pea seeds from 2006! 


Photos from moggy’s garden 

about 3/4 of a acre of ground, from a detached house - orchards, chickens (notice the solar powered chicken hatch opener - very useful and cool!) vegetable patch, water harvesting, rabbits…


Quick shot of my room - herbs drying on the floor and the bed! I have been sleeping in the spare room…
Herbs I am drying -
wild marjoram
yarrow
mugwort
hawthorn flowers and leaves
wild white horehound
plantain
plus a host of others…
