no dig allotment

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.

November update from my no dig garden

November has been a month of contrasts so far: sparkling frosts, glorious sunrises and rather a lot of rain. It has been pouring down here all day.

Sad Sprout Story

Brussels Sprouts are one of my most favourite vegetables. It is a happy day when the first sprouts are ready to pick, I even like to eat them for breakfast! Every year I grow several varieties to extend the sprout harvesting season – but sadly this year, it hasn’t gone according to plan.

No Dig Gardening Podcasts

Two podcasts to listen to – both about no dig gardening. Lee Connelly (aka The Skinny Jean Gardener) recorded our podcast at BBC Gardeners’ World Live a few months ago.
