Jan 26th - traditionally our tomato canning day

And we're ahead of ourselves, because we did all the prep yesterday. It's lovely and cool today, and the sky is very grey -

but the vegetable garden is pretty.

This little patchwill be cleared out today and fed and rested for heritage garlic to go in in a couple of weeks.

Oh! Look what came out of it - all those heritage carrots I'd forgotten about

- orange, white and red. I've been feeding the tops to the chooks, and the bottoms had grown on anyway. Must remember next week to sow some of the seeds in the bee-feeding area near the apple trees, as well - I can keep the greens and seedheads for cooking, as well as for the chooks.
