Hasn’t the month passed quickly? I can hardly believe that it is August on Thursday. Today I’ve been enjoying more of an indoor kind of day, catching up with things at my desk and general chores, because it has – finally, oh joy! – been raining. I love sunshine and warmth, but it has been very dry for my garden and the polytunnel has become so hot.
I am speaking today about No Dig Allotment at the Let Talk Allotments stage at BBC Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC.
I’m here until Saturday. If you’re attending the show do come and say hello!
There are some fantastic show gardens, will share photos this evening.
No dig gardening, Small Scale Homesteading and other talks and workshops booked so far this year.
It’s spring and I am thinking of winter vegetables! Root vegetables are surprisingly easy to grow using no dig methods. Yesterday I sowed parsnips, carrots, radish, Hamburg parsley and scorzonera into a recently applied mulch of compost on top of my heavy clay allotment soil.
