Garden – July 2020

12/07/2020 Leave a comment

June was a lot like April with lots of mixed weather and the start of July has been similar. However, I have saved on the water meter and the now fed lawn has turned green. So far, food eaten from the Garden, Strawberries, Mint, Lettuce, Red Duke of York (chipped), Spring Onions and Senshyu Yellow (Summer Onions). Weeding like the wind, as you would expect. I have some small Tomatoes but they are still green. Hoping they turn read soon. Lockdown easing.

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.

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.

March was a funny month as I’m sure you all can guess. So with the fence being mostly down and the Corona Virus, nothing much happened. However the fence is now back up, I have 13 seed potatoes (Red Duck of York) planted in various bags and containers. However, I’m now out of compost and I can’t just pop out to get some. The Summer Onions are coming on well and I’ve planted some maincrop sets to replace those that failed. On the indoor front. I have planted, White an Red Spring Onions, Lemon Basil and Garden Mint. Oh and I think we are having a drought. 2020 is turning out to be one hell of a year.
