Easy to grow salads, almost ready to eat from the box!
This mixture of seeds, mostly saved seeds, so the cost is minimal, has taken about 3 weeks to germinate and grow, outdoors.
Coriander, Parsley, Lettuce, Spinach, Leeks, fennel and more, all jostle together.
These will be cut and cut again for several harvests.
Some of the bigger, stronger seedlings will be pricked out and planted on.
Living on one’s own can be quiet at times and it was so great to get such lively and uplifting feedback…bless you all XXX
Nothing was ever thrown, but rather placed in the ditch or bank, so when people like myself excavate decades later, much of what we find remains intact.
Some of them are really beautiful, don’t you think?
Among other things, the practice of excavating old sites is directly linked to antique bottle collecting and glass-making.
This hobby is so very interesting as it allows a picture of the past to be slowly unraveled and a new tapestry created of past lives.
The ground has been dry and water levels in wells have dropped in recent weeks.
The rain-water barrels have served me well, but are now empty.
Close planting has helped preserved the moisture in all of the beds.
I have hung Mizuna and Purple Sprouting Broccoli in the barn to dry off.
In between, it makes a beautiful bush…
Enjoy every day in some small way…Blessings X
