Mustard, Raspberries and the Mushrooms are Starting to Grow

We’re hoping to grow winter vegetables in a patch of soil near to the house, where a boundary wall will act as a wind break during the harsher months – but the soil in this spot is very poor.  We’re trying out a natural, organic method of improving the ground by planting a test-patch of White Mustard seeds.  This morning they had sprang into life:

We were also really relieved to see that our raspberry plant (that arrived in a really poorly state via courier) is now thriving after a little TLC and sunshine…

… and our mushroom growing tray has started to develop little fuzzy white patches around the edges – watch this space 🙂

  1. I love your blog! It always brings a smile to my face with your refreshing ideas and attitude. Reminds me of when my now grown children were young and planting their first gardens and discovering their world around them. Thank you for including all of us.
