Almost forgot the November garden !

default Almost forgot the November garden !

Post by Chilli-head on 17th November 2018, 7:07 pm

Crickey, where is November going ? Fortunately it is a quiet month in the garden.  But I did make it out for an hour or so to tidy and sow broad beans.

Whilst digging, I noticed only one earthworm,  which has me worried. Is it the time of year, temperature, or do I need a lot more organic matter ?  The garden veg plot gets only composted kitchen/garden waste, no manure.  Perhaps I need some "good stuff".

Anyone grow Chinese cabbages ? If mine have not hearted up yet, is it too late, or might further patience be rewarded, do you think ?  I guess they are not in the way.

I don't know anything about Chinese cabbages I'm afraid. As is customary I have nothing planted outside. I have some spinach just germinated in the polytunnel and I must get round to putting in some broad beans. I've still got parsley growing in there and plenty of lovely carrots to harvest.
