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.

February, the month for snow at the end of it. However we have already had early February snow and we are now entering The Beast From The East 2. I little hedge trimming and the lawn is looking green after being fed and the moss killer has done a good job. The Big News of the Month is that the Seed Potatoes have arrived and Chitting has started. First Earlies Premier, Second Earlies Casablanca and Early Maincrop Blue Danube. Spring ahead I hope?

The second month of Winter and it’s post a hard overnight frost. It’s supposed to get a little warmer later so I might mow the top off the lawn and then feed it. Seeds ordered and have arrived, Potatoes ordered and due to arrive at the end of the month. Planning to dig the garden in February if the weather is willing. All rather quiet on the garden front.

Another three frosty nights, just like last month but really mostly rain. Not much in the way of growth although the lawn is still very green. May need to get some more Onion sets over the Christmas seed sales as a couple have failed to germinate. Black Friday Seed Sales are now a thing even if they haven’t been dispatched yet. Working on what Seed Potatoes for 2021. Maybe planting then in Pots and Bags again. Emphasis on Chips as you would expect. Merry Locked Down Christmas.

Well since last month the have been three frosty nights but mainly it’s been mild, rainy but mild. Not much going on in the garden, mainly due to the rain. However, weeds are being killed, the lawn was mowed and now has Weed and Feed on it and the Summer Onions are still coming on well. Digging still planned but as it’s getting near Christmas, planning for the seeds and sets is in full swing. Happy Foggy Gardening.

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 – 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.
