Vegetable garden Sunday check.

Time for a small break.

Time for a small break.

Had my usual Sunday walk through the garden and spent a brief while in the veg area taking notes.No problem weather wise with the sun shining.Cool but no worries there.The tunnel doors are open to allow in some clear air.Now that the bean beds are all empty and allowed to rest to prepare for the next veg i will spend most of the time in the bottom section of the vegetable area over the next few weeks where some beds are still in use.No more work will be done today until evening time in the seed room.We lost in the second round of the all Ireland club football c-hip just by a whisker,earlier on today but i still have the seed room to return to and the garden so all is not lost.Maybe do better next year at the football.

You have everything so neat and tidy, John.

Jacinta, is right John, very neat and tidy - mine always looks like a bombsite - what seeds are you sowing????

Thanks Jacinta and Sharon.

Sharon,all entered into most of the top beds will have been started first with modules,trays,etc.With the crop rotation here it will be only root crops that will be sown straight as they dislike movement and they will be made up from carrots,beetroots,spinach,parsnips,and also another seperate root crop the potatoes.They will have been chitted first before sowing.

John's garden is a credit to him.  We had hard luck in the game today. At least we won the championship!!!!

Thanks Mary.We could have came up trumps today but another time and we are still in with a chance of winning the league and feis cup.
