Summer makes a late comeback

Wednesday was superb with some long sunny periods and warm too. It did cloud over late afternoon with our first drop of rain around 18:30. Pity the forecast predicts a change to cold northerly winds by the week end.

It’s now time to start give some thought to what went well and what didn’t on the plot. We like to try something new each year even if it’s only a different variety of vegetable. This year we tried a different carrot called Flakkee. It’s turned out well and produced a good crop of well flavoured roots.

Its ultimate test is to see if it survives winter left in the ground with only a protection of straw against the winter frost and snow. Click here for more details of how we protect carrots over winter.
