A quick trip to do some shopping this morning, then on my return, a change into my working clothes and into the garden. The large composter has now been emptied and most of the garden has had a good supply of the contents, well dug into the soil. Of course, the birds have lots to eat again; see yesterday’s blog. The compost in the two smaller composters, which was only partially decomposed, has now been turned over well and the mixture filled into the previously emptied large composter. Hopefully this will all be ready for next year.
Hah - I beat the rabbits to these few spears which popped up over night.
Tonight I will have a meal from the garden. Steamed asparagus, served with a mix up of jerusalem artichoke (topinambour), sorrel and chopped chives. I may just cheat and use some bought garlic (I did not grow any last year), to add a bit more flavour. Perhaps I could even cheat a bit further and add a fried egg over the top. No chickens (yet) in our garden.
Chives, with sorrel growing to the rear left .
This was really yummy, an experiment I may not have tried if I had not been on my own. OK, so I cheated further with a slice of brioche!
