Garden – June 2021

06/06/2021 Leave a comment

Where April started, May completed and it was a cold wash out as well. June has actually introduced Summer and I find myself hoping for more overnight rain. So due to May, everything planted out is at least two weeks behind. The earlies are just showing the first signs of flowering and it’s out with the watering can every morning to keep things going.  The first of the bush tomatoes were planted out ten minutes before the video was taken and the Cucumbers will be following then spoon. The weeds in the garden are a constant headache and I’m pulling them up every night, not that you can tell.

Garden – May 2021

April was cold and dry and it delayed most of my planting. The things that were planted, mostly the Premier in bags haven’t been damaged but their growth has been slowed. The end of April and into May has been changeable but still cold. My replacement Strawberry plants arrived and are now growing if somewhat slowly.

One Friday in April it was raining so I put the weed and feed on. Two problems, I put too much on and it immediately stopped raining. Repairs are plan for May Day Bank Holiday Monday. All the holes in the garden are now filled Premier and Blue Danube. The rains came and the garden is now completely covered in weeds. When the potatoes push through it will be all out weeding.

Garden – April 2021

05/04/2021 Leave a comment

The weather in March was all over the place, including the hottest days of the year so far. There was also frosts and some very rainy days. The lawn was patched and despite it saying germination with four days it took a fortnight. My Strawberry plants are rather sparse, so new ones are on order. I was hoping to put them in over Easter but they haven’t arrived, which is just was well as the overnights have been rather cold and getting colder and frostier. I have 22 McCain Premiere First Early seed Potatoes in, both in containers and bags. The rest are currently waiting to go in due to the impending frosty weather. Looks like it will be mid April before they go in. However, the holes for them in the garden have been dug and it will just be a question of popping them in, covering them and giving them a good watering. Much planting as soon as the weather turns warmer.

The lawn has been moved twice since the last video and is looking green and good. Patch repairer and Weed & Feed is on order. The digging of the garden has finally begun but it’s slow going with lots of weeds and roots to remove. i have to get there by the end of March, which frost willing the first potatoes will go in. A little bit of Summer Onion replanting to replace those that didn’t make it through the Winter. The chitting potatoes not have bigger eyes. Spring is here.
