Garden – December 2021

28/12/2021 Leave a comment

Well December is usually cold, wet and Full of Christmas. Add to that this year it’s mild and it has the second Covid Christmas. Emptied one of the Potato grow back and had chips made from Garden Potatoes, they were rather good. The main thing about December is the Christmas and Boxing Day seed catalogue sales. Obviously online, with the discount codes they send out and a Topcashback referral code. This year was no different. I filled my boots. Please rain stop enough for me to dig the garden. Happy 2022.

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 – 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 – July 2021

I have to be honest, I hate weeding. However, I am doing weeding but the amount I am removing seems to be much less than the new weed growth. Still, the battle continues. The first baby Tomato has appeared and dependant on the weather, it’s out with the watering can every day. The first of the bagged Potatoes (Premier) are almost ready and it will be home grown chips before the end of the month. Lemon Basil is lovely.

Garden – June 2021

Where April started, May completed and it was a cold wash out as well. June has actually introduced Summer and I find myself hoping for more overnight rain. So due to May, everything planted out is at least two weeks behind. The earlies are just showing the first signs of flowering and it’s out with the watering can every morning to keep things going.  The first of the bush tomatoes were planted out ten minutes before the video was taken and the Cucumbers will be following then spoon. The weeds in the garden are a constant headache and I’m pulling them up every night, not that you can tell.


Garden – April 2021

The weather in March was all over the place, including the hottest days of the year so far. There was also frosts and some very rainy days. The lawn was patched and despite it saying germination with four days it took a fortnight. My Strawberry plants are rather sparse, so new ones are on order. I was hoping to put them in over Easter but they haven’t arrived, which is just was well as the overnights have been rather cold and getting colder and frostier. I have 22 McCain Premiere First Early seed Potatoes in, both in containers and bags. The rest are currently waiting to go in due to the impending frosty weather. Looks like it will be mid April before they go in. However, the holes for them in the garden have been dug and it will just be a question of popping them in, covering them and giving them a good watering. Much planting as soon as the weather turns warmer.
