The above picture is this years last box of organic vegetables from the garden. Swedes,carrots, parsnips, red cabbage and early sprouting broccoli.
However because of an ongoing back injury I have decided that I shall have to give up on the production of fresh vegetables for this season at least. For the last couple of years I have had great crops from the veg garden which have made us fairly self sufficent as far as vegetables go.
However , this was only possible with the help of family and friends who did great work for me after I injured my back in a road accident. This year I think it`s only fair to give them a rest. This leaves me with a small problem. What to do with the vegetable garden? There is a lot of bits and pieces of roots and root vegetables to be dug out of the ground before I can leave it go fallow for a year or two. Maybe some of it can be turned into a wildlife garden. But what about the roots etc.? I shall have to get a rotovater. But what model? What about this model?
I think instead of providing the vegetable course for the family meals I will have a go at providing the meat course. I still have some apple trees which will give us some nice apple sauce.
So any vegetable pieces left in the ground can be recycled.
Sounds like fun! Don`t you think?
