  • Cleared my finished watermelon plants, and pulled up a dead squash plant.
    Also picked three Candy Roaster squashes and left them in the sun to cure.

    • Tame the hedges day.

      Now that there is no danger of disturbing nests we can really have a go at the mixed hedges.

      Hawthorn is a bit of a bully and needs to be cut away from such as our sea buckthorn, blackthorn, tamerisk, pittosporum, and gorse.

      It's taken seven or eight years to get the hedges established and now they fight back, so I guess that's good.
      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...."

        • Planted out some perpetual spinach/chard, not sure which. They are fairly small so going in the last chance saloon patch along with some swede with arrested development. Also 3 bronze beauty lettuce and 4 radicchio as think they are tough enough to survive on the plot.
          Sweetcorn chopped up and composted.
          6 spring cabbage popped in under a cloche.

                • Wrestled with rasps. They have grown to about 7 foot and are all dropping over. So much fruit on them high is great but getting hard to manage and no idea how I will reach the fruit at the top.

                                How do you keep it watered? Auto or what?
