Gardening notes - January 2016

Apologies for not posting this earlier!

Here are Margaret's gardening notes for January, it's not too late to get stuck in.

There's lots to do in the vegie garden. I'm harvesting the first of the scarlet runner beans and tomatoes (Stupice, which ripen early). The raspberries are over and the black currants are mostly in jars of black currant jelly. The boysenberries are still gorgeous and prolific - there is a big jar of boysenberry 'country wine' bubbling away on the kitchen table awaiting bottling (and pretty much immediate drinking).  Lots of brassicas going copiously to seed.

Enjoy the warm and the New Year.  Planting notes below.
