Wild Crocus in Garden


This is the time of year when we discover what re-organisation the squirrels have done to the various bulbs and plants in the garden. There are always plenty of wild bluebells, a few daffodils and it seems a number of crocuses. Today the sun was out and the crocus selection looked like it would get trampled by cats, foxes and maybe myself, so a decision was made to bring some indoors.

Things that should not be grown in December in England


Although not exactly a farmer it is still challenging to grow things in a small garden a few yards from the A3 and in the inclement weather that the UK provides. But I must report some success. Some potatoes harvested today planted a few months back that claimed to be ready for xmas. Daffodils also made an early apprearance, not sure where from but purchased in the Co-op in New Malden for £2.

It was deemed by the head chef and main servant in the household that these were too good to put inot the oven tonight so will be eaten and relished tomorrow with some other more appropriate fare.
