May 2013…This is an update on all that’s growing in the permaculture gardens today.
The season has been slow to get going, as the sunshine has been minimal, with rain and cold prevailing.
Despite the appalling weather here in the west of Ireland, Apple trees are laden with blossom and bees are buzzing around the gardens busily pollinating all the blossom.
The bees have been hard at work on the Blackcurrants, thus ensuring a good harvest to come.
Rhubarb is cropping well, due to the top-dressing of manure from the hen house it received last Autumn.
This was mixed well with compost and straw and was well rotted down.
