Leaves aplenty

Last chance to collect leaves for next year’s leaf mould! This is the new leaf mould bin on the plot, made from some wire grids that were wombled and passed onto me by the previous boatman on the adjacent canal side mooring.

The garlic leaves are well on their way up now, and the sea beet is finally growing leafy. It clearly appreciates the deeper soil that it gets here, compared with the shallow bed it was in at home in the garden.

The salad leaves are growing well underneath their simple protection of a fleecy blanket held down with stones. There is also chickweed growing in the gaps between the planks, which I love because it adds visual interest and it is also edible.
