It’s cold outside. The long tailed tits from the Go Local Food fields have been visiting the feeder table at the bungalow next to Halls of Heddon where our grower’s father lives. The table is properly stocked with food for the time of the year.
Outside on the fields at the moment it’s just maintenance work as the ground is too cold to work. The old gardener’s maxim of don’t dig the frost in applies. So hedge cutting can be done and dead heading of frozen weeds to go on the compost heap.The propagator is working in the now refurbished shed, Leeks and broad beans have been sown and plans are for lettuce and spinach to follow.
