Barrels of leafy greens
The barrels are now cascading with leafy greens, this luscious one has an abundance of butter lettuce, cos lettuce, spinach, rocket, watercress, spring onions and tatsoi.
We've been happily picking the daily salads from the barrels and not noticing any shrinkage- oh joy!
Unfortunately we only have 2 barrels of broad beans, the bunnies breached the perimeter of my little garden and feasted ....* deep sigh* ...speaking of critters, do you see the barrel is on bricks- wondering why?
It's a fact that moles can squeeze themselves through the tiniest of holes in search of the 'good life' in a cosy warm barrel.
You're looking at the magnificent watercress the art teacher has been growing...volcanic dust is his secret ingredient..... now I've just got to convince him to let me pick some.
