December 2014 - Taking Care of Established No-Dig Garden

Even in gray December we have a little spring taste. Spring salad set seeds, seeds hit the ground and i covered the bed with a bit of compost.
Germination was good, i thinned a bit and covered with fleece.
We already picked the outer leaves once and now we can do it again.
Lots of rain and cloudy days these year here, but growth is good anyway.
Nice addition to chicory salad bowl.

A nice woolen jumper for the garden bed.
In the back there is a garden bed covered with unfinished compost for peppers and tomatoes next year.
Next to the woolen bed on left side we have a challenge, grass path, constant invasion into the bed, we need to do something about it!
Leaves, cardboard cover before winter for sure.

No-Dig parsnips! :)
First time growing them, more of them next year for sure!

When we harvested late cabbage in September, we covered the bed with compost and planted winter oak leaf salad.
It needs harvesting now before winter!
We could've harvested it already, i have no idea why we didn't!

Althoug we have constant rain and moisture garden can be walked thanks to leaves on paths.

It's so nice and rewarding to see the preparation job done for the season 2015. :)
