    • Wednesday jobs
      Weeding and horsetail - done a bit
      Deadheading - done some
      Remove dead branches from hedge at allotment and shred - done
      Cut grass and mow lawns if possible - done lawns
      Harvest cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, strawberry - done except peppers

      Also removed balconi tomato plant as it had blight, and picked most of the Sungold and Ferline at home as a precaution.

      Thursday jobs (no gardening time and everywhere is under water)
      Check tomatoes at allotment for blight.
      Harvest courgettes, beetroot and any ripening tomatoes

      • I only have crops to harvest now, leeks, cabbages, carrots and parsnips out side, so little planned maintenance to do, putting pots under cover due to forecast frost is this weeks jobs.
        There might be a few autumn raspberries to pick, but it's their first season, so not many fruits.
        If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                      • Start clearing away the nasturtiums and beans
                        harvest a handful of chard to try a new lasagne recipe, and any remaining tomatoes and peppers from the greenhouse

                          • Dead heading the Roses is just about all the gardening I'm doing now, still lots of buds on them and the smell does remind me of warmer days.
                            If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                              The chilean guava are strange things - the taste is quite pleasant but the skins are rather rough and hard. Not sure I am that keen on them!
