    Damage report

    Assessment after the recent extremely hot and windy weather: overall, things could be a lot worse, though I guess some problems may not show up for a few days.

    Four Brussels sprouts plants totally and utterly frazzled. Have replacements I can put in in their place tonight. So could be worse....

    Plot date 22.7.21

    I've started picking cherry toms and some of the big toms are starting to ripen. I had to remove some from one of the plants on the south-side of the double row due to blossom end rot. It's the only plant with problems. Looking at the state of it, I'm guessing it can't get enough water up in these hot...

    Snoop's log, plot date 29.6.21

    Thanks to Mr Snoop's help, no more work preparing beds is required this year.

    I currently have two empty beds waiting for winter cabbages, caulis and the like, plus another small winter veg bed, possibly late-sown parsnips. One of the empty beds will have French beans as well, while the...

    Snoop's log, plot date 20.6.21.

    Am already coming to some conclusions about no-dig and using sheep muck as surface mulch in the conditions we have here. Some things are thriving, other things are not.

    Climbing beans never do well here, but even the dwarf French beans are not happy in the conditions. And neither are the...

    Snoop's log, plot date 7.6.21

    Haven't updated this for a bit, so thought I'd catch up.

    Still got a bit more land to clear, but the veg patch up by the house is getting towards sorted. Some plants are behind but that's par for the course for me. Still can't make my mind up about clearing a couple of beds down in the...

    Snoop's log, plot date 22.5.21

    Not very much to report but keen to keep a record.

    All the peppers and aubergines have taken. Courgettes looking fine. Home-grown toms and basil have taken to the new bed with maybe 7-10 cm of muck on top very well. Shop bought ones looking a bit less happy, but they're quite tall in comparison...

    Snoop's log, plot date 15.5.2021

    Spread a load of muck this morning and planted out the tomato and basil plants. It's due to be warm but cloudy a lot of today, not as windy as the last few days, so conditions should be reasonable for them.

    Of the plug plants, the yellow peppers look like I'll need to buy some more. Will...

    Snoop's log, plot date 10.5.2021

    Had a very productive morning and a third of the plot is now looking ready for action, as opposed to covered in wild grasses. Now just need to get no-dig depths of compost down and plants in. The likelihood of us staying no-dig is not high. So many weed seeds around about us. But the soil will be glad...

    Tomato bed now ready for structure to go up. Took a bit less effort to prepare than I expected thanks to Mr Snoop's help. But he is not a no-dig person. Much as he agrees with the principles, get him out there and he wants to dig and rotavate. I must admit, it all looks very neat and tidy now. Will...

    Snoop's log, veg patch date 4.5.21

    Thought I'd resurrect this as a way to keep track of my no-dig efforts. Using well-rotted sheep's muck as my compost.

    Today so far: scythed down the putative tomato and squash beds and the paths between and around them. Seem to have improved a bit at scything. Made better progress than...
