CROPPING AND HOLDING NEWS.
Broad beans , overwintered onions and garlic have so far got through the winter unscathed . Parsnips , some carrots , beetroot and more beans have been sown in odd dry periods over the last few weeks . As yet , they have not shown above the ground which , the weather being like it is , must be a blessing from on high . In the ground they are relatively safe though rotting is always a possibility but in our ground, this is very rare . Lambs have been born and are nice and toasty in the polytunnel . More are due but thankfully not quite yet.
