About Me

My photo
Known to most as GOK or Bella, I am a half-Venetian, half-British knitter, stitcher, dyer, grower, aesthete, historian, grammar-fascist, culinary goddess, gamer and uber-geek - working in the UK making fine bespoke corsetry and theatrical costume... with occasional forays into making videogames too! Constantly homesick for Venezia.

October 21st: LAST TWO BEDS DUG!


Weeeeee, ‘tis done! Kevin dug the last of the eight beds yesterday while I planted up Bed 6 with Wintergreen spring cabbage and Musselburgh leeks. It’s all looking lovely! I’m tempted to put in some catch crops of winter lettuce too! Just need to plant up beds 7 & 8 now, and then make some netted frames for them all.

Next big job – extend and dig over the dye bed…esp. as I discovered I’d been sent even more extras in my brassica and leek order!

And of course, there are the leaves which need to be cleared…..ugh!
