Getting the plot ready for the new year.

Cut some cavolo nero, black tuscan cabbage. Sowed broad beans, a mix of aquadulce and bunyards exhibition; two rows under a netting cloche and two in the open air. The BE variety isn't recommended for January sowing but worth a try. The overwintering onions and garlic are mostly showing through. There are a few leeks left, but they are about the size of modest spring onions.

The wind has stripped the roofing felt from the shed but otherwise no damage yet from the weather.

My order of seeds has arrived from the Real Seed Company, always a sign of spring on the way.
