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.

Superior Hot Weather Sales Technique

Bridgend because, why not, haven’t been there for ages and it’s the same price on the train as just going to Cardiff. Double check in at the Wyndham Hotel. Apparently due to the council? Slowly watching an upload and then onto to The Coach. What an excellent pub it is! And the Barmaid has an excellent sales technique. Two glasses and a T-shirt later. Didn’t make it to the Little Bar on the Bridge as I became a bit sleepy and then it was the joy of cancelled trains. I need more Beano training, urgently.#

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 – July 2020

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.
