What is your weather like?

Pouring down and cold North wind, brrr! Even the dog wasn't so keen on her walk this morning . Looks like West is best this week, pretty dismal forecast for Kent right into the weekend.

Blueberry bush problems!

Hi Dani, they look OK to me. The fruit should start to swell soon.


New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Can't say that May is going out in a blaze of sunny weather here in Kent๐Ÿ˜•. Its been cold and cloudy all day with heavy rain forecast overnight. 

Looks like being a decent fruit crop this year, all the currants and berries have a good set and are now safely covered in netting to protect from marauding birds.

Sown Swedes along with some more carrot and beetroot. Fingers crossed for some warmer weather to finish hardening off my courgettes and squashes.

Lovely looking plot GWRS, planted out some French Beans today and did some weeding. Plot is gradually filling and I reckon by the end of June it will be full.

We've had a pitcher plant in our North facing bathroom, it thrives on neglect.

Hoeing, not 'going' 

When is it best to Weed

If you're going its best to do it when it's dry, that way any weeds lifted will wilt and die. Handweeding is easier on damp soil.

Get some debris netting, it is fone esh but very strong and UV resistant so lazts for years. I've used it to nwt my cabbages for 5 yrs now and so long as you peg it properly then it works a dream.
