Like a lot of people, I can sometimes find this time of year in the garden a little sad.
The optimism of seeding in Spring which turns to the realism and hard work of Summer (countered, hopefully, by lots of lovely, homegrown food!) are over till next year. So I decided to approach things differently this year. I have planted a huge amount of Winter Cabbages, Cauliflowers, Chard and Kale to fill up the empty beds. As I’m not expecting them to survive anything will be a bonus.
It’s more like a science project than gardening.
