September 2006

The 2nd September, Rob’s birthday and the Wollescote show. We had a laugh with new friends and paid over the odds for auctioned flowers, vegetables and a birthday cake.

Wollescote Show produce

4th September – Planted broad beans they should be ready to harvest from February 2007. 16th September – We put up the gazebo and netted the sides, put down weed suppresant fabric and planted sixty three overwintering brassicas. They should be ready by March next year. Planted two hundred overwintering onion sets over three beds. Trevor finally moved his marrows and pumpkins so we were able to clear the ground. We lost all three beds of potatoes to late blight. We were advised to cut off all the haulms and leave the beds for two weeks before digging up the potatoes. We don’t expect to get any.
