I planted snow peas and snap peas in my old beds today.  I planted them along trellises used for late-season French beans.

I also cut the lawn in the front garden, mulching any fallen leaves into the grass.  I've found those mulched leaves break down and improve the soil under the lawn.

Transplanted lettuce seedlings into raised beds today, and rigged up a screen over the bed to keep the squirrels out (they dig looking for seeds, and wreck the seedlings).

I'll transplant Swiss chard seedlings tomorrow, and probably seed turnips (for greens), carrots, and radishes.

Conscripted the sprog into helping me tidy up the garden, swap the netting on the beds for next year and clear out the greenhouse. Despite the cold we both had a great time.

Went for a walk  along the coast today and decided pick up some seaweed, got 8 bags full. Added some to the active compost heap, spread some around the garlic and cabbage and also filled an old bin three quarters of the way up and topped off with water to make a homemade liquid seaweed fertiliser for next year.

Also just had time to spread four barrows of finished homemade compost over a bed.

Spent the day barrowing compost from my bins to my beds , giving each a 2 layer.  Also topping up the paths with 3 year old shredded Christmas tree chips ( lots of worms in this !). Reminded me that this time last year it was very wet and l needed to top up the paths before l could walk on them without squelching ! .

I started  out just planting daffodils around the roots of an old stump, with grass seed over that. However, since I'm doing that and adding a good thick layer of compost, I thought why not add a few vegetables here in a temporary bed, this winter only?  I'm planting some spinach and radishes here, let's see how they grow.

After one crop, it will go back to just lawn and daffodils again.

Planted out a few additional Swiss chard and lettuce seedlings into the raised beds today. These add to the ones I planted at the beginning of December.  Mid January, I should be harvesting some lettuce, spinach and chard
