Another picking of sprouts. I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of sprouts I have picked from the plants that were planted late in the season. Note to self. When I see the plants in the market, buy them and plant them. I have weeded and hand forked my herb beds. The herbs are starting to grow and it is time to take cuttings if I want more or replacement plants. I have six rosemary cuttings in the poly tunnel and I hope to get one or two plants from those. The chives are showing signs of growing and the horse radish looks "alive".
I have sown a pot of early leeks. The idea here is to have leeks from late summer and then continue through the winter with the later and more frost resistant varieties. Thought comes to mind - plans of mice and men....
