There is not much to do at the plot, nor in the garden. Both are pretty wet and muddy, young plants growing over winter are taking a break while it’s cold and dark, ready to spring back into action when the days get longer. The main reason for a visit this morning was because it was not raining for once and having stayed in all week it was nice to get out. A bonus would be collecting some bits for tea, swede, turnips and sprouts.
We felt it might be nice to try a bit of leek and potato soup for lunch. The ‘failing leeks’ at the plot were still looking a bit sorry but at least a couple had grown quite a bit and were worth pulling. This was more than enough for soup and hopefully shows that a lot of the other leeks will follow over time and it won’t be as bad.
A small bit of weeding and that was it. A nice (a bit cold) morning walk without any rain.
Meanwhile at home I sowed chilies with the hope of them germinating within a couple of weeks if I put them in the south facing window indoors. I refrained by sowing leeks until at least mid February.
