It’s always good to get the first veg started off in the new growing season and now we have beetroot sown and potatoes chitting. This year we are growing three different varieties of beetroot (chiogia, golden, and detroit red) and two of potatoes (Belle de Fontenay and Sarpo Mira). No shallots this year but both red and white onions for a change.
Other things are stirring….
We tried a green manure crop of field beans in some of the beds this winter and they were a great success, so we will repeat next year in all the beds.
Dwarf narcissi are out and the daffodils are near bud burst.
Thats all from Grahy for March, see you next month!
