Garden-less Gardening or 'Micro-Gardening'
My well-worn old garden plans from 39 years ago showing on left the six 30ft x 4ft raised, 'deep'/'no-dig' beds I started with here in 1982
Time to Plan your Plot for Next Year - Planning Pays Off in Abundance!
Keep a Weather Eye out Now!
It Could Soon be Time for a Major Cover Up!
With weather so unpredictable in October it's best to be prepared - so I'm also checking over my fleece collection now. I will have to cut a few new ones as I generally stuff them into old compost bags over the summer when they're not needed - but the mice found some of them this year - they must have made a lovely soft nest - but now are totally wrecked! As usual the mice of course are thriving! I won't throw them away though - they'll still do for a top layer when the weather gets really cold and I may perhaps need two or three layers (I don't fancy 'mousey' fleece sitting on top of my salads!) - I'll just put the new clean ones on top of the lettuce or anything else that won't be cooked! I bought a huge roll of fleece from my local farm supply shop a few years ago and I cut off new bits as I need them.
