Lots going on in the Veg Garden

Thank goodness the potatoes are in, we have planted lots of home Guard and Arran Victory in the walled garden. We also have some Lumper potatoes in too, very important for the Famine Museum.

All of the seedlings are well germinated in the glasshouse if only the weather would warm up a bit it’s fairly cold at the moment so no planting out yet. Great to see our trees in and being well watered. A lady came into the cafe here yesterday and said that she saw two red squirrels in the woodlands always great to hear this.

Growth has slowed down quite a bit recently no need for lawn mowing really. Had a look and I see that the American Skunk Cabbage (Lysichiton americanus) is settled in well in the woodlands no flower this year, lets just hope its spreading it roots in its new home for many years to come. The Shuttlecock Ferns (Matteuccia struthiopteris) are looking their best at the moment to those upright light green fronds just cannot be outdone.
