This year’s game cover mix is turning out to be the gift that just keeps on giving. All very well, the radishes bolted and most of the kale seems to have washed away, but each step along the way has brought benefits to the hill. At the moment, the most obvious benefit is the amount of flowers and nectar available for the insects. I wanted to include this photograph of borage and phacelia growing in the field because both have done so well this summer. They’ve brought a whole new dimension to the crop, and it’s been a real pleasure watching them come up.
