      • Watered all the veg beds. Can't remember when we last had decent rainfall
        Picked lots of tomatoes
        Wanted to do more but too busy with other things
        Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds and a Giant Puffball! https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...lies/smile.gif

                • Pulled out the remains of my melon plants, now that the melons are all picked. Also trimmed up the watermelon plants to try and remove some of the diseased material, which seems to be spreading like mad.
                  Fed and watered almost everything.

                  • Verticut the lawn, which left the patches invaded by weed grasses almost bare. A bit scary.

                    Seeded and top dressed those patches with screened topsoil.

                    Overseeded the whole lawn for good measure.

                    Sprinkled on about 2cm

                    ​​​​​​Fingers crossed and keep it moist for a couple of weeks.



                    I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

                      • Collected a piled high trailer full of fine wood chips with plenty of green (for adding to compost), pottered about on the lotty and did lots of nattering. Showed a party of new tenants round the plot.

                        • Ordered nematodes for lawn leatherjackets. Haven't actually seen any crane flies but don't want devastation like we had three years ago.
