Garden – September 2021

05/09/2021 Leave a comment

Autumn is here and so is the September high pressure. Grey in the morning and sunny and warm in the afternoon. A spot of Delta Summer (as it is now called) is on the way. Garden wise, everything has gone growth crazy and all the tomato pots have tipped over. Home made lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes for tea most night. The indoor Peppers are the way forward, if for no other reason than they are not eaten by pests. The lawn mower seems to be eating the lawn. There must be a sign there somewhere. And now 2021 is beginning to slip away.

Garden – August 2021

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 – 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.

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 – October 2020

More than halfway through October and there hasn’t been a frost yet. The Cherry Tomatoes have gone but the bigger ones are still there and growing. Just started on digging the garden and the weeds have died back. Ten pots have been filled with new Compost and planted with a mixture of red and white Summer Onions. The lawn has been mowed and feed and the hedge still has most of its’ leaves but they are turning yellow quickly. Planning Garden 2021. Happy gardening.

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.

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.
