My husband & I were & are working a lot in our allotment & that is why, you haven’t received any new inspiring recipes from me, lately. Only the last recipe, that I posted a few days ago. The last 2 weeks, the weather has been very good. There has been a lot of sunshine & blue skies. What else do you want, right? The temperatures has been higher too. Yesterday, it was 25°C! Two months ago, my husband Peter build us our own large cold frame. It is 2 meters x 82 cm. Great, right? Here it is:
And here it is open :
The chervil has been growing very rapidly, the last few days, nearly ready to cut off.
What else is happening in our garden?
We are growing 2 different peas. Here under this horticultural fleece are the lower peas growing, called Kalife, into 3 rows. Before planting, we soaked them for 24 hours into a bowl of warm water. This is to proceed the growth. We planted them April, the 4th 2015. Gradually, a few of them are already popping up under the fleece.
Further, in the row, you can see strawberry plants & we planted garlic between them. I planted 12 garlic pieces & 10 came out! Cool! 🙂
Here you see the other horticultural fleece with Snowpeas Norli under them. We also planted them April, the 4th 2015. We also soaked the seeds 24 hours into a bowl of warm water. We have to check daily for snails & slugs. These pea shoots are popping up also. Just after that, you see our bows with young leek plants, red onion & spring onion plants. We put an anti-fly sheet over them & a horticultural fleece to keep them warm at night!
So, this is the 1st update since November 2014. We also planted some rosemary, bay leaf, thyme & sage, but no pictures yet. We also have sown Bolivar beets into the full ground & chioggia beets at the right side in our cold frame.
So, I hope to see you all later in the year, for the next update! 😉
