Garden – August 2022

29/08/2022 Leave a comment

August was more heat warnings, more rain, more Thunderstorm warnings and most recently, a drought warning for the whole of Wales.  Potatoes, I’ve eaten most of the early Casablanca and I’m now starting on the maincrop Desiree. Finally my tomatoes have started to turn Orange and Red after spending weeks on just being Green. No sign of any of the cucumbers yet, however I have some Peppers albeit still green. The Strawberries are still coming and will do until the first Autumn Frosts arrive. The month ahead (September 2022) will be bringing the harvest home. And the Summer just rolls away.

Garden – July 2022

31/07/2022 Leave a comment

July was the month when we had an Amber Heat Warning, the threat of a hose pipe ban and everything bar the Strawberries being approximately a month late. However, as I write this it’s been a rather damp weekend. Enough to fill the reservoirs? No, but good enough to stop going out with a watering can for the next couple of days. Casablanca are my new favourite potatoes, I have had a really good crop from them this year and they make great chips. My Japanese Summer Onions Senshyu are ready and I have been eating them for the last week. Not too strong and really crunchy, the only thing is that they do not store well. Pull them up and eat them straight away. Having slightly better luck with Spring Onions and half of my Tomato Plants are finally flowing.

Garden – October 2021

The main thing, all of October and no frost. Infact, quite mild and some days rather hot. Lots of rain and some flooding. The Hedge is on the turn and due to the weather, the outside Peppers are still going strong. Some issues with the lawn mainly due to overfeeding and weed killer, however it is still nice and green. The Summer Onions are coming along well and the main garden needs digging (again). Everything is going to slow down from now on.

Garden – August 2021

15/08/2021 Leave a comment

They say that August is the wettest summer month and August 2021 has certainly proved that to be correct. It’s actually raining as I write this and it’s stopping me from taking the video and photos. So, what happened since the last update, well mainly Potatoes and Cucumbers. The various varieties of Potatoes made great chips but I was rather disappointing by the yield, both in size and actual cropping. Still, I’m going to blame the poor Spring. Cucumbers, which were well hidden under their leaves have grown and are still growing rather large. No need to buy any. Still, they are a little bit bitter, compared to shop bought. The 2022 Summer Onions have been ordered and should arrive at the end of September. The 2021 crop is currently being eaten and it is a good if not great crop. The Peppers which are indoors, are coming on rather well. All in all, a bit of a mixed garden bag.

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.
