green finger tips - one months growth - before and after
before and after
i took the second picture about a month after the first. the mustard went wild. it was swamping everything else. i had to thin it out. i laid the plants i pulled out on the ground as a green manure. green manuring is a process of growing green materials like mustard, clover, lucerne and linseed and pulling them out to use as soil improving materials.
i took the next photo a while later, after i had radically thinned the mustard and i took some of the fennel out. the mustards are starting to bolt.
