Happy Christmas to all our readers – and a mild, damp time we are having. I’ve mulched the asparagus bed to protect it from frost, but there’s not much sign of that being needed at the moment. The mowers have been serviced and put away for the winter (don’t forget to do that – some companies offer decent discounts if you do it early!), and I’m getting on with building my new raised bed. It will give me a much more manageable area to work on next spring, which I’m looking forward to. We’re still using the leeks from the ground and there’s a bit of parsley there which I’ll have to lift out of the way of the new bed. Have a lovely time over Christmas and we’ll see you in 2016!
