What a year can do

We're packing boxes and ungardening at our current place with 26 days until we move.  I've been repotting plans I want to keep and Jan's been helping to neaten up the gardens we're leaving behind.   I've been rewarded time and time again for the efforts I put in when we moved in here.   Potatoes would pop up all around the place, we were going to be blessed with a massive crop of jeruselum artichokes this year too.

I've left a few plants in to see if I can get them to come up before we leave.  E.g. strawberries:

Broadbeans:

Many heads of garlic that I'll pull at the last minute:

Globe artichokes:

I had a parsnip go to seed and parsnips are coming up all around the garden:

We've improved soil so much that we've been blessed with good crops.  I've enjoyed seeing mushrooms and toadstools pop up all around the garden confirming the soil is healthy:

mushies

Bulbs and plants all around the place:

I hope we can do as well in such a short time at Widget Grove.
