I couldn’t resist showing off todays colourful ‘haul’ from the garden at Dyke Farm House, Poynings:
This week Martin has been planting onion sets in the long border outside the Old Walled Garden, digging over the vegetable patch and raking it to a fine tilth, ready for seeds. The soil had become so compacted from all the rain we have had recently. Today he planted the seeds of Swiss Chard and Perpetual Spinach.
During this coming growing season Martin is going to share with you some ideas for your vegetable plot.
This week he has been clearing the remainder of produce grown last year.
