You could say it was all about the horseradish today.
We had some great sunshine accompanying us while we were clearing the corner bed to fill it with our compost.
Charlie joined us before he takes up a position at an independent school and got to dig up the horseradish. He likes it grated in vinegar, I will make a sauce and add some to cooked and grated beetroots. Delicious. The roots take care of themselves so it is one of my favourite plants.
I covered our new bay of compost in the making with some coffee grounds and animal bedding. The heap was mostly carbon so far. The addition of nitrogen will help start the decompositiom process but we nees plenty more of the greens and other sources of N.
The vine looks very modest after Duncan’s prunning and will be ready to explode with leaves and fruit next year.
We had a hearty lunch and chatted about different psychological and community processes we are interested in.
Charlie stayed on to finish with the bed.
Thanks for the help in 2018, I hope you enjoyed our adventurea and see you next year peeps.
