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 – May 2021

02/05/2021 Leave a comment

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 – August 2020

16/08/2020 Leave a comment
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.
