PHOTO 1: Cross over planting from Winter to Spring – Celery Seed placed in furrows under mulch of hand cut barley stalks – planted last week of August – if frost strikes the barley should protect the seedlings – but usually at this time of year frosts are finished. ALSO planted Spring Onion (early August)  from seed using similar method of cover – emerging seedlings are not affected by frost. Late season Mustard was also planted.  Date of Photo: 30/08/21
