Plots been watered for another hot day ahead. Mumma allotment minion came with me because it takes me over an hour by myself. Enjoy your Sunday's, think of me whilst I'm working 🙄

More plastic stripped back yesterday - the ground was 3 or 4 foot high in weed (nettles, dock, grass ...) when I put this down in the winter. Today it just has a few dock roots to ease out and the odd weed that’s managed to grow where there was a hole in the plastic. I won’t dig it, it’s nice and damp so I will just ease my cape gooseberry plants in and mulch between #nodig #nodiggardening #charlesdowding #allotment #capegooseberry #physalis #planting

First harvest! After staring at everyone else's harvesting photos for the last month, I realized how far behind we are in garden growth. Living in the Pacific Northwest....our days are cooler... today we actually hit 65! Everything grows very slow. We are no #charlesdowding. I aspire to garden like he does though...maybe one day.

What are your garden goals? #leavemeacomment

The winter squash bed is starting to bloom and those pretty yellow flowers really do make my allotment look lovely.
I have several varieties growing and I cannot wait to roast them up with some garlic butter and blend into a soup 🥣

My allotment minion who makes everything for me is out of town for the weekend (sad face) so I've had to give making a brassica cage by myself a go. Who knew holding a piece of mdpe pipe and sawing in air would end up injury free? I'm pretty proud of it 🤣 at least my brussel sprouts (two varieties) will live happily ever after now.

I will always get a kick out of digging up the first potatoes of the year.
Just a small harvest today and I fully plan on making a warm summery pie with those goosberries 🥧
Have a lovely weekend everybody! °

Winston is the nicest gentleman ever. He gave me a tour of his four plot allotment and let me take home one of his cabbages. His plot is amazing. I aspire to have a plot (or 4) like Winstons. No weeds in sight, a healthy dose of everything you can think of, and polytunnels filled to the brim of chillies and cucumbers. This man needs a medal.
Ps I am actually this shade of white red and brown. My allotment tan game is strong, but also very very poor in terms of even colour 🤦‍♀️

Today is the summer solstice. The longest day and the shortest night.
After that the nights start drawing in again...now isn't that depressing? 🧐
Have a wonderful day everyone, it's meant to be warm and sunny! °

This is the first Calabrese we've ever grown, all thanks to no dig and Charles Dowding! We are so pleased with how our allotment is coming along, and simply wouldn't have been able to do this otherwise. Growing vegetables is such a pleasure, we feel blessed every day.

Look at that! My pumpkin is loving the feed I'm giving him. I'm feeding it 10L of water every other day and tomorite once a week. Does anyone have any tricks or recipes for fertilisers that they've used? I think I'll take great care in looking after him 🎃

Yesterday's task was to to pick and hang herbs from our garden, ready for those comfort meals during the colder months.
There's something quite special about opening a jar of dried herbs on a cold day and smelling that glorious smell of summer come rushing back to you.
The prime time to pick herbs is right before they flower and early in the morning when they are freshest. You can hand them as long as you like. They look beautiful and will never go off. We let ours dry for around 4 months and then either pick of the leaves or grind them to a powder and store in jars 👍

Bring on the rain 💦🌱 I’ve been reading and referring to @charles_dowding & @stephaniehafferty ‘s book about no dig gardening (& more), and @nikijabbour ‘s book about gardening year-round. They all have YouTube tutorials as well. 👌🏼🌱 #interplanting #gardening #successionplanting #nodiggarden #compost #ontariogardening #growingvegetables #growingfood #charlesdowding #nodig #nikijabbour
