Things are starting to happen in the garden – especially since it has been unseasonably warm. Currently, the broad beans are growing faster than the slugs are eating them, who knows, I might get to eat some broad beans. The garlic is up and the chives seem to have grown a few millimeters every time I look at them – in about a month they’ll be ready to start harvesting.
There are tones of greens yet to eat – perhaps I planted too much. Kale, wintercress, chicory, mache, spinach and mizuna are ready to harvest. For a third year in a row, something has eaten my radicchio before I could so I might not bother growing them again.
In the cold frame chard and parsley are re-growing (the frost in December almost did them in). Unfortunately, all my cilantro in the cold frame has been eaten by slugs, however inside I already have the next batch well on its way.
