This year we would like to get enough from the vegetable gardens to feed us and supply the house, and to supply Ord Ban. Some of the lettuces are nearly there, the purple sprouting broccoli and the various spuds, mint, chives and so on are fighting fit. About half the 37 beds have something in them and all around the forget me nots are fading out for the lupins. I have put more pictures on the Inshriach flickr page.
I'm comparing notes with an old friend, Dan Light, whose occasional accounts of urban vegetabling are a treat. Here is a choice one.
The Insider is also coming along nicely. We look very likely to get our license on Monday, have found a man with beautiful yurts to rent out and word seems to be out round town. The website is going up over this weekend and there will be only 400 tickets available so get in quickly.
