As the freak Indian summer comes to a close we've started looking forward past those frosty mornings to next spring! And in preparation we're getting some plants in the ground to make sure they are established before winter and can get a sprint start next year for a really early harvest.
So above we have Rich putting in some onion sets.
And here is Eleanor putting in some Broad Bean, we've only planted 10 broad bean just in case another really hard winter kills them off. The rest will be planted early next year.
Today we also planted some garlic cloves to give us a crop of garlic in late June/July next year.
Garlic need the winter snap to start their life cycle so it's important to get them in now...
In other news, don't buy cheap tools!
