what can i sow now

Posted: 22/08/2016 at 07:01

MOST important thing to do right now is decide what you WANT to grow! Please don't throw things in the ground because it's the right time to do it when come harvest you find your family won't actually eat any of the produce.

Plan your allotment out; work out what you want to eat, how much space it will take, what soil quality it needs, relax.

Morning all. Bad night; when his lordship wasn't snoring so loud it killed any chance of sleep he was getting up and letting the dog into the bedroom because he wanted cuddles. Unfortunately puppy wanted cuddles with me.

I'm knackered! Good job I'm visiting family tonight so can kip on their sofa / floor.

About to go and make a huge cup of tea. Anyone else want one?

Topped his lordship off with a lemsip and both he and the hound are snoring away.

Is it too late for me to put a tent up in the garden? I have the immune booster tablets Dove recommended rattling around inside me so I hope I'll escape the sniffles.

Guess which door the master sleeps behind!

Wonky I've filled him with rum and coke than while he was distracted he managed to eat spaghetti bog. Hopefully he'll now feel sleepy and leave puppy and I in peace!

Joyce; schools go back soon so I'm making the most of the quiet time!

Unfortunately HE WON'T go to bed. Insists on snuffling around being miserable.

Sweet dreams Dove x

Been on a wonderful walk and even enjoyed a picnic.

His lordship is however now very grumpy as his cold is kicking in and the neighbours children are alternating from one side to the other with their balls / trampolines / high pitch screaming / little dog barking. I'm hoping he'll just go to bed soon.

I've filled the green bin and emptied a compost bin. I need to now think of ideas on how to make this area wildlife friendly for the many frogs that are currently in residence in the scruffy area that will be soon turned into lawn.

Any ideas?
