15th – 21st September 2008
The best way to get rid of a cold ….. besides resting, the next best way is to get up to go to the allotment, being there can ease the cold symptom as breathing in fresh air can help the congested sinus….. that is what I did this week …..
Highlight of this week
Thanks for the JCB, he helped to dig in all the compost into ground and hope for the best for the next period of grow …. Also I have rearrange the layout of all the compost bins that I have, 4 of them now locate at the end of 4 rows, and rotate them in next year….think this should be good plan…
Plants @ the plot
The plants in this week generally growing fine, PakChoi, Kohlrabi, Chinese Leaves Rocket, Spaghetti Squashes, Sweetcorns and flower plants are looking OK, except ….. Leeks are attacked by leeks moths and I was suggested to squeeze some diluted Jeys fluid and hope the leeks will survive in the next few weeks….an eye now on you…..LEEKS
New Plants of the week
Swedes and Mizuna Leaves salad are put in this week…
Produce of this week
Harvest the mini pumpkin and suppose to take for the Church fate, but I have kept it for tasting first before posion others…..The cucumber and figs are from home garden, the rain does help to produce all these sweet figs and fat cucumbers ……
Bits and Pieces
I have cut the bottom stalk of all the French Runner Beans as they are nearly finished and it can quicken to dry up some beans for next year seeds (a trick told by Shirley from plot 12).
The mooli was not very good this year, it must be growing in some undug ground, the root is not deep enough to produce juicy root….I shall try next year…
The forecast for the coming week is sunny dry, is that mean time for autumn cultivation…….
