Been harvesting heaps of cauliflower and broccoli as well as carrots and potatoes.
And speaking of potatoes do you remember the spuds I planted with comfrey placed in the bottom of the row? (You can catch up here if you like)
Am I going to call adding comfrey to the potato rows a success? Hard to tell really though it appears there was no detrimental effects. I'll definitely be doing it again with this season's crop though.
They had a good growing season but I also used aged stable manure mixed with garden soil for hilling and then there was the run-away chook that kept scratching all the hilling away and then finaly there was a week of frosts that finished them off for good so all things considered I'm more happy with the results compared to previous crops I've grown here.
