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.

February 2020 is going down as the worst weather since the double Beast from The East in March 2018. First of all Storm Ciara blew my fence down and Storm Dennis and the ongoing bad weather is stopping it being put back up again. So the garden hasn’t been dug and with all this rain it wouldn’t be. The only real growth is Onions, Summer Onions outside and Spring Onions indoors. I have Potatoes chitting and with a bit of luck, they will go in their bags and pots late March 2020.

The middle of the month had a week of Full On Indian Summer and it was all rather good. Strawberries, lettuce, tomatoes and onions all fro the garden. But since then it has rained and rained with the lettuce pot flooding. A quick in and out to get the video before the rains started again. Clearing the weeds and digging the left over potatoes start next week/month.
