I’m half way through my first year of establishing my garden so there is not a whole lot going on. I didn’t plant a lot in autumn and this is a cool climate with a lot of frosts, so what I did plant has either grown pretty slowly or is not expected to be ready for harvest until spring. So I haven’t been harvesting anything much aside from parsley. But there’s a bit more growth occurring now:
Newly planted dwarf nectarine Goldmine – first deciduous tree to start shooting.
Rhubarb looking a bit sad.
New shoots on loquat.
Winter planted artichokes putting on good growth.
Calendular planted in late summer has flowered constantly through Autumn and Winter.
Flowering rocket is attracting bees.
Parsley has grown slowly and steadily through Winter albeit in a shady position.
Pretty crimson flowers on broadbeans.
Tuscan kale has been slow growing over winter.
Accidentally sowed this Florence Fennel seed in Autumn. It germinated and survived winter and is starting to form.
Chives standing to attention – harbinger of Spring.
Greenfeast peas starting to take off.
Autumn-planted Goji Berry started growing leaves in early Winter.
Turnips which I mass sowed and never thinned out much.
