Garlic and Bunnies

In the past 12 hours the baby bunnies have done a lot of growing up! They’re now looking very much in control of their limbs, quite confident and interested in the world.

I glanced back a few minutes later and there was one of them exploring the cage – just a few minutes out of the nest, then he (or maybe she!) hopped back into the nest quite competantly.

They’ll be stealing Trudy’s dinner by tomorrow night!

We’re now eating the first of the first-early potatoes from the allotment and very tasty they are too.

Today we lifted the garlic crop, so that’s now drying off for a few days before we store it – some will be hung up dry in strings, the rest will be minced and frozen. It’s not the best harvest in the world but it’s better than nothing! I’m hoping to plant about five times as much this autumn.

Having cleared the ground in the garden where the garlic was, we’ve top-dressed the ground with some compost and planted out some of the courgettes to grow on. The rest need to go to the allotment in the next few days. I’ve nearly finished pricking out the brassicas to grow on so the courgettes will go in where the brassicas came out.
