Things are humming along quite nicely at the moment in the Walled Garden. Okay, the weather could be kinder, but frankly there is nothing we can do about the weather, other than accept what comes.
We have started the next lot of seedlings in the forcing house and when they are big enough, they get planted out in the glass houses, as you can see above. JR has things well under control. This is what will keep producing salads and vegetables for the table in autumn and winter. Historically this was of course why our ancestors built the glass houses, to enable them to keep growing things through out autumn and winter.
JB has plenty of mowing to do in the grounds. If there is one thing rain and cool conditions are good for it is growing grass. This is why we in the island of Ireland can produce dairy products second to none and beef that is the best. The French have similar conditions in Normandy and they can certainly produce dairy and beef in that region.
As you can see JB have the grounds looking good for the European Heritage Open Days on the 12th September.
