Winter is certainly here.......
It is so cold. Yesterday it snowed just over the hills from our farm.
Dad and PopPop are in the workshop on cold days. Whilst Mum and I spend most cold days inside............................. today we rugged up and went out into the vegetable patch.
In the winter I grow garlic in my vegetable patch, lots of it. In the summer Mum and I will dig up the garlic. We grow more than we could ever use, so Oppy sells it for me at the Craft Shop. Last year I made $90.00. I put it all in the bank! My garlic is growing good.
Mum has cauliflowers and broccoli.....
the asparagus is in hibernation, we need to cut all the dead stalks down.
the rhubarb is good but the slugs are eating the leaves.
We planted some beetroot, lettuce and spinach but between the grubs and the cold they are having trouble getting bigger. We pulled out most of the weeds, but the cold winds soon sent us back inside to the fire!
