No severe wind problems.

No severe wind problems.

Just after lunch i managed to have a look in the garden shed to check on some seeds for 2010.Plans with the roots beds to use Spinach[Perpetual spinach] Carrots[James Scarlet] Turnip[Purple top Milan]Beetroot[Boltardy]Swede[to be decided]Parsnip[White Gem] Both turnips and sweds final placings to be checked.Either sown with the roots or the brassicas.That will be most of the roots planned for the new year including the potatoes,and they will be from Duke Of York,British Queens,and Roosters.

Once the start of January comes then Spring will be in the air in a short while and the bad weather will eventually move off [we hope].Good luck to all the gardeners have a great New Year..

Busy as always, I actually spent 30 mins in the Kitchen Garden this afternoon, Dug over one of my raised beds with difficulty as it was fairly frozen even in the winter sun. Hope you have a great New Year celebration and that 2010 will be sucessful for you in the garden.
