Mid-August Sowing and Growing

… and harvesting too! All of the hard work sowing, planting, watering and weeding has paid off and my garden and allotment is glowing with abundant fruit, herbs, flowers and vegetables. I can hardly keep up, what a lovely problem to have!

Midsummer no dig allotment and garden

It’s early July in my no dig garden, and I am loving the daily fruity harvests of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, gooseberries and redcurrants. Whitecurrants are almost ready to pick and cherries soon too, protected from birds by enviromesh, pegged securely to the tree.

Veg, herbs & edible flowers I’m sowing (mid-August)

I’ve spent much of yesterday standing under the apple tree in the back garden where I have my outdoor potting bench, sowing seeds. Some are for cropping in autumn, others will be for winter and spring harvests. There is a list of everything I’m sowing at the end of this blog post.
