Garden – June 2022

26/06/2022 Leave a comment

It’s been very Great British Summer since the last update. Very hot then showers and cold. I still think that the season is two weekends behind, if not longer. The first of the Potatoes (Casablanca) are dying back, so are ready and I will be raising them soon. The Lemon Basil looked ready and then immediately went to seed, these are the things that happen to me. With the third pack of seeds, the Salad Leaves are now off. Lots of strawberries and the lawn is OK if not spectacular. The Summer Onions are coming on a treat and should be ready this time next month.

Garden – May 2022

It’s all about germination and May 2022 was a microcosm of it all. Salad leaves and garden mint, slow and both have been reseeded. Tomato seeds, all germinated and are growing well. Peppers and Cucumbers, a very mixed bag. Radish, fast and a hundred percent. The lawn is looking better and all the Potatoes are growing well. Mind you, I think that’s a lot to do with the weather. May was raining days then summery sunny day. Of course the best growing were the weeds yet again. However, twas ever thus.

Garden – April 2022

24/04/2022 Leave a comment

There were two really hard Sunday morning frosts in April and they did for my early planted mixed salad leaves and mint. These have now been replanted and the weather is warmer but sorely lacking in rain. Watering can to the fore despite being on a water meter. The early Casablancas are growing well and have been earthed up three times. The Desiree (main crop) are in some tiny black plastic bags. Much smaller than I thought I would get. How they fair, only time will tell. The lawn needs moving every week now and has been fed twice. I have even started to dig the garden but only a bit.

And we are off. Multiple containers of Casablance (first earlies), Stuttgarter to make up for the Summer Onions who did not make it through the winter. Radish, which have already germinated, various Spring Onions, some of which have already germinated. Chives (a first), Salad Leaves, Mint, Lemon Basil and some new Everbearing Strawberries on the way. The lawn has been left unmown as it is still patching. The weather hot days with a touch of overnight frost. Cooler weather in early April forecast.
