Spring Harvest
Before we can invite you back to Sunnybrae there is a great deal of work to be done in the garden. And I have to learn how to manage this blogging biz! The original artichoke and asparagus beds are all thriving and while the asparagus has finished we are letting it go to fern and heavily fertilising the beds for next spring. Artichokes take on a completely different persona in summer, they grow close to the ground and develop saucer sized heads not seen often in the markets. During summer they need a great deal of water and sadly we do not have the reserves to grow these to fruition. However they make new plants at this time and we are now in the process of separating them for new plantings next year.
