It is the eve of Bealtaine at Bealtaine Cottage and so I am celebrating 8 years of permaculture here at the cottage! Summer is upon us once again and the Earth is busy producing the harvest of the coming season… The flowers of the Chives have already made an appearance and these are just so gorgeous in salads. Chives is also very easy to grow, forming lovely clumps as above and producing edible leaves and flowers that replace the traditional Spring Onion for me!
Yesterday afternoon was spent cutting the grass, regarded as a harvest and used in compost and as mulching. The by product of all this harvest is neat grass paths upon which to walk!
Lots of beautiful “weeds,” …what do you think? Here is today’s video…focusing on the woodland and what grows down there!
what a relief to take a virtual tour through the garden…thx for sharing! eric
That’s only a little bit of it! More to come…
Eight years- there’s perseverence for you! Well done to yourself!
Wish our weather was summery, don’t think its ever going to arrive here, and I can’t bear to be parted from me winter Arans yet either!
Enjoy your party agus Bealtaine breá agat!
Thanks Beckety…and hopefully the summer will be there for you soon!
Bealtaine Blessings to you and yours
It just all looks so green and lush…how will you celebrate your hard work an diligence? Congratulations.
Tomorrow Eve I am having a party and a bonfire, lots of home made goodies and good company…the weather is goo too!
Congratulations on your anniversary!
Thank you…the time has flown!
Like the post. Love the video. We have had almost no bluebells this year. There are a few in my garden but very sparse in the woods.
That is interesting, because the famous Bluebell Woods near where I live…Dereen Woods, were a month early in their display…so it would appear that the seasons are out of sync somewhat!
Totally, even in my spare bedroom I am having trouble starting sweet pepper plants.
