Garden tour

This is how my potager is looking. Last week it rained almost nonstop from Monday through to Sunday, so all work is currently halted, but e v e n t u a l l y I will get round to laying that curved path properly. Quite possibly not until spring though. I've also laid a few bricks out to see how the central circle path will look - I think I'm going to have just enough.

I'm working out a planting plan on paper. The front right corner will be spuds, because half of that used to be grass and they are meant to be good at breaking up hard ground. The back right corner will be garlic and also beans, but the beans won't go in till it's warmer. They aren't good companions so I'll make sure they aren't right up next to each other.

Standing at the shed doorway and looking west towards the glasshouse. I love how those bricks are looking weathered and worn already.

These calendulas will brighten up the winter landscape a bit.

The pak choi is growing well, almost ready for harvest.

Annnd... in the glasshouse, I have tomatoes! These are Arctic tomatoes which were sown in January, to see if they will continue to set fruit over winter. This is the biggest green fruit. I had another truss that were doing well, but when I inspected them closely one day I found them to be full of caterpillars, little buggers.
