Garden – October 2020

18/10/2020 Leave a comment
More than halfway through October and there hasn’t been a frost yet. The Cherry Tomatoes have gone but the bigger ones are still there and growing. Just started on digging the garden and the weeds have died back. Ten pots have been filled with new Compost and planted with a mixture of red and white Summer Onions. The lawn has been mowed and feed and the hedge still has most of its’ leaves but they are turning yellow quickly. Planning Garden 2021. Happy gardening.

Garden – September 2020

The Summer was odd but with September we have Autumn and Autumn is as it should be. Much cooler nights which mean that the bush Tomatoes that have died back. More rain and the odd Indian Summer day. I’ve caught up with mowing the lawn but it still needs feeding. Lots of Cucumbers and the excess Blue Danubes from last year need lifting. Summer Onions are on order and will arrive later this month. Already planning 2021 gardening.

Garden – August 2020

2020, the year with Spring and Summer swapped. August so far has had Heatwaves and Thunder and Lightning. The plus side was the watering can was deployed less.  All the bagged Potatoes, both Red Duke of York and Blue Danube have been eaten, well as chips. There may be some left in the bags but I need to empty them out to see. After much waiting, the cherry Tomatoes have gone from green to red and they are lovely to come home too. I have also grown two Cucumbers, yet to eat however. The lawn hasn’t been mowed as much as it should, mostly due to the incessant rain. Summer is a strange thing.

Garden – June 2020

May 2020 was very dry, hot and very sunny. June 2020 so far it’s turning out to be a standard British Summer with some spells of rain stop play already. The Plum tree was dead and I’m slowly removing the branches and the trunk. I’m going to get some stump remover in September with maybe a new Plum or Cherry tree next Spring. Ripe Strawberries arrived just before the 01st of June and I’m having one or two every night. The garden which I was going to cover in weedkiller is now full of Potatoes, those I did not dig up last year are now coming back to feed me. Lots of Spring Onions, Onions, Tomatoes and Cucumber are well on the way to be providing my tea. Slightly less locked down.

Garden – May 2020

Happy that the fence is back up but it really needs painting. Lots of weather both a heatwave and lots of rain. Frost returning in w/c 10/05/20 according to Derek The Weather. Getting compost has been difficult but Aldi has rescued me a number of times. Whilst food shopping, not on a separate journey. The Blue Danubes (maincrop) have finally pushed through and the Red Duke of York have started to flower. Indoor Spring Onions and the outdoor Summer Onions are coming on well. Lettuce (mixed) are making good progress and the indoor seedlings – Tomato, Peppers and Cucumbers are all to schedule. I think there will be Strawberries by the beginning of June. The weeds, well they seem rather weed killer resistant. Staying safe.
