The title of this blog post is exactly the same description I use when people ask me how my garden is looking at the moment. The word “swamp” is also another – Grrr!
The weather has been wet and windy again of late and what with Christmas preparations and family stuff, I haven’t had a chance to get my wellies on and get stuck in which is driving me mad!
On the plus side, Will and I have had a chance to have a sit down with the veggie catalogues and choose some seeds to sow for next year. Problem is, we have both gotten a little carried away and I think we are planning enough to fill a 10 acre field so once Will breaks up from school (8 days!!) then we’ll go through it all again.
He is adamant however, that we grow the following:
Beetroot, Multicoloured Mix
Radish, Bright Lights Mix
Peppers, Sweet Spectrum Mix
These are all things we eat on a regular basis so am more than happy for these to be grown however, I think these choices are more to do with colour than anything else! They will look great on the plate though!
