Just a quick post, this, to put up a few more pix, and to link to Rose Elliott's rhubarb crumble recipe from Guardian Weekend mag a couple of weeks ago. Can I say "comfort food"? I think so ...
The pic to the right is one of the fab Link-a-Bord raised beds, featuring at present some red baron onion seedlings, a few leeks and some rainbow chard. The backdrop is a rampant May hedgerow, and the source of bindweed (aka all that is evil in this world).
And to the left, there's the comfrey monster to the left, the self-seeded cornflower mountain in mid-shot and a lot of molehills - I mean potato mounds - in between. Rather than the whole ridge thing I go for little bumps for individual tubers, which seems like less work somehow though I suspect it isn't. A bit of rain in the last few days since this pic was taken has transformed the weedless view you see here into something rather more, er, lush.
Current worried: will my squash germinate? Are my tomatoes too leggy? And will my passion flower ever grow any new leaves?
