We had one last task left over from 2016 this afternoon – finishing up at the old plot and clearing out the greenhouse.
We weren’t the only ones doing a bit of clearing up – as we approached the gate, a buzzard flew out of the walled garden and when we got in there we found out why. Just be thankful that I decided there was no tasteful way to photograph what was effectively the top third of a rabbit. Too late for most of my veg, unfortunately.
We came away with the last leeks, a few token kale leaves and broccoli sprouts, and a bag full of chilies.
And that’s all, folks.
2017 will be all about the new veg plot, a fruit cage, and hopefully finding a replacement greenhouse. I cycle past an empty one every time I go into Bigtown which is slowly falling into decrepitude. One day I may have to stop and make them an offer…
