Week 26 – Year 2 (Christmas Trees?)

3rd August – 9th August 2009

The height of summer is here and the mid of my year cycle… most crops either still growing or maturing ready to pick… the best time to stay around at the allotment… as I have found out…

Christmas Trees?

I have noticed all the Bean Posts including mine at the allotment are fully covered with bean flowers and runner beans and they just look like Christmas trees loaded with trimmings….

What about my plot….

This week I have planted in about 100 leeks and direct sowed in some Mooli Radish seeds in the ground…. continue digging out potatoes…. keeps on feeding the Chinese Cabbages and Pak Choi…. My Sweetcorns has growing fairly well although a bit squashed up with my bean post and other squashes growing together… My Three Sisters Planting trial seems working and in the future make sure space out further and use support cane for beans….

Week 30

1st – 7th  September 2008

What a wash out week, more than 60 flood warnings in this country during the week and you can imagine how wet situation we are having…… miserable also for the people like me who love the gardening…….

At least I manage to dash in and out of the rain to the allotment to get some photos and get some work done …

Highlights of this week

The rain seems not going away for awhile as the coming week still wet and gloomy, we definately had a washout summer.  Plot 6 & 7 had announced never grow tomato outside as blight had attacked and all ruined.  It seemed blight occured in continued wet period.
