Calendar 2014: January

Over at the Grapevine we are posting monthly views of our gardens/allotments to show and record the changes that occur during the year. I thought I would do the same here and post the relevant monthly photos.

The savoy cabbages are under netting as are the surviving purple sprouting broccoli. The heavy snow in November caused a lot of damage and the netting should protect the crops – somewhat – from any further snow and ice. Though I will think twice about growing PSB again, its a very long growing season and they need a lot of TLC to survive here.

The fruit trees have all been pruned, which was a bit of a fraught job, as we have never done this before. Finger crossed that we have done it correctly, only time will tell.
