Autumn Garden Maintenance

This weekend I’m planting out my winter vegetable crops. I ordered the special Digger’s Club members’ pack and am very happy with the selection.

This year I’m planting:

  • Beans
  • Peas
  • Cabbages
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower

I’m really looking forward to watching this lot grow over the next few months.

I’m also doing some garden maintenance stuff too. I have to assemble and set up a new garden arch, and I’m hoping that I get to do some more paving down the side of the house. A busy but rewarding weekend of work.


Winter Garden Work

It’s hard to find the motivation to do any gardening at all, with the weather being a cold, rainy, windy, and generally unpredictable. I use the Winter months to do my maintenance work – tidy the potting shed, repair trellises, weed and mulch. (so not much gets done). This year, I’m hoping to finish painting the side fence in the front yard – it’s only been half painted for the last 5 years!. Wish me luck.
