I feel I am failing miserably with the vegetable garden this year. A broken kneecap put paid to all the November and December prep work, and several months of little to no rain mean that the clay soil is like stone, despite all the compost dug in last year. The turkeys have eaten the baby lettuce, and the peas have not hatched. Only the broad beans are doing well.
I've covered up some areas with brown paper and cardboard to smother weeds and warm the soil for squash. Hopefully that will help. And we moved what was left of the greenhouse and planted climbing roses, to make a bower.
