Gardening notes for June

Well, cooler weather has finally arrived - I found the unusually warm nights of autumn a bit disturbing; maybe I'm obsessed with climate change!

The green manure is growing well - just have to remember to dig it in before it flowers. Garlic and broad beans are up - planted the beans in the front garden. Harvesting broccoli, leeks and lettuce and of course Tuscan Kale (even the chooks are fed-up with it!). Tomorrow I'm planning to make sauerkraut with the little cabbages and other vegies. And I'm in denial about the pruning. 

Best wishes and keep warm
