It's the time of year to give the beds a much needed digging over and a tidy up. The sage bushes had gone a bit crazy so I chopped those back with a spade.
I also transplanted some sturdy rocket which may or not withstand the predicted artic blast.
Number two son Tommy Dutton (3A) helped with the planting of  the garlic leaving me to plant onions (both red and white).
Hopefully there should be some neat rows of shoots to provide a little interest in the winter months. I'm currently looking out for some winter cabbage and broad beans as well, but if these aren't available it would be a good opportunity to dig in some well rotted manure to the beds that aren't in use. The rest would probably do them good.
