Garlic planted.

That's the Garlic in.

2 Rows of Taylor's Marco.
2 Rows of Unwin's White.

I've also planted a row of Shop bought Garlic. Probably Spanish to See how it goes.

Yesterday was a fabulous Autumn day and it was a pleasure working on the plot.

Dwarf curly Kale

Due to the the pigeons destroying my main crop of Kale I have sown some Fothergill's Kale Dwarf green Curled Borecole.

We gave up on the second sowing of Bulb Fennel due to excessive weeds and with attempt to sow again. I need more space to put tomatoes out and the only real space left is next to a tree. I've dug and removed some roots and will get the tomatoes in next time I have the time.


Nope. Sage!

Tomatoes and Comfrey.

On the plot early today.
The main task was preping an early for some tomatoes.
It looks like some of the weed have turned out to be comfrey and possibly borage. So I've left them be. I've edged the bed with marjoram and some lettuce.
