Garden – April 2022

24/04/2022 Leave a comment

There were two really hard Sunday morning frosts in April and they did for my early planted mixed salad leaves and mint. These have now been replanted and the weather is warmer but sorely lacking in rain. Watering can to the fore despite being on a water meter. The early Casablancas are growing well and have been earthed up three times. The Desiree (main crop) are in some tiny black plastic bags. Much smaller than I thought I would get. How they fair, only time will tell. The lawn needs moving every week now and has been fed twice. I have even started to dig the garden but only a bit.

Garden – March 2022

And we are off. Multiple containers of Casablance (first earlies), Stuttgarter to make up for the Summer Onions who did not make it through the winter. Radish, which have already germinated, various Spring Onions, some of which have already germinated. Chives (a first), Salad Leaves, Mint, Lemon Basil and some new Everbearing Strawberries on the way. The lawn has been left unmown as it is still patching. The weather hot days with a touch of overnight frost. Cooler weather in early April forecast.

Garden – November 2021

Well, it took a long time but Autumn is now over and the cold of Winter has arrived. Sunny, cold and chilling winds from the North. The weeds are dying back, the lawn has had it’s last mow of the year and I’m emptying the pots of their compost. The Green Summer Onions are coming on well with the red ones following slowly behind. I’ve got some rather nice Spring Onions indoors but they are not going to last very long. It will soon be seed buying time again.

Garden – September 2020

13/09/2020 Leave a comment

The Summer was odd but with September we have Autumn and Autumn is as it should be. Much cooler nights which mean that the bush Tomatoes that have died back. More rain and the odd Indian Summer day. I’ve caught up with mowing the lawn but it still needs feeding. Lots of Cucumbers and the excess Blue Danubes from last year need lifting. Summer Onions are on order and will arrive later this month. Already planning 2021 gardening.

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.
