Hard Ground

I went to sow some green manure on that potato bed you can see below and the surface had baked hard, it's been an incredible dry, warm couple of weeks here; daughter picked just the right fortnight for her holidays didn't she?

I did take a cultivator hoe to it, then thought, don't be silly, wait till it rains then it will be easy - I just hope by then there is enough time for the green manure seeds to germinate.

Potatoes



Here's some Sarpo Mira and Valor after digging on Sunday (while puppy, who knows a good photo opportunity when she sees one stayed in the flower garden with a toy)

What to do in your garden now

If you have a look in the right hand column, you'll find that I have updated the topical tips, I hope they are useful.

10:10 and Climate change

You'll see a button on the right which takes you to a campaign to help any of us understand more and do something about (at home, work or play) our own impact on climate change.

Nothing washed away

Had torrential rain here yesterday and very strong winds, I thought the beans might blow over, but my Scout pioneering knots held the poles together; just as well - we have such a crop of beans coming in.

By the way, I'll be doing the September topical tips over the weekend. I'm already getting excited about planning what will be planted next year.
