I thought I’d share a different angle of the garden this morning. Soon, my polytunnel will be up and it will be where that blue wheelbarrow is to the right 😃 Can’t wait! We’re moving super slow due to lack of time, but it will get done! This morning I sowed my final bush bean succession planting and did a quick weeding. What are your weekend garden plans? . . . . . #lovegardening #growwhatyoueat #growingfood  #instagardeners #ediblegarden #garden #gardening #mygarden #allotment #growyourownfood #homegrown #homegarden #raisedbeds #backyardgarden #vegetablegarden #veggiegarden #organicgardening #urbangarden #urbanfarm #gardenlife #halifax #eastcoast #greenthumb #gardenlove #growyourown #kitchengarden #allotmentlife #growyourown #gardendesign ------v---👩-----/------- -------/------👩👩👩👩-----/----- Follow @wildhearts_garden repost @nikijabbour
Unfortunately we noticed some odd fungus like markings all over our once beautiful acer in the garden, it turns out not to be a fungus but scale, an aphid like insect . They suck sap from your plants and excrete a “honeydew” substance which can attract fungus and impact the plants ability to photosynthesis . Few liquid remedies will help due to the covering on them so I used a sponge to scrape them off the tree and then spraying it with a garlic or soap solution to help prevent reinfestation and any eggs left behind . The acer has already replaced all of the fallen leaves with new leaf buds . #acer #scab #scrubyourtroublesaway #bugproblems #gardenproblems #gardentips #tipsandtricks #gardenadvice #gardening #japanesemaple #ilovegardening #mygarden #allotmentlife #lovenature #growyourown #gardentherapy #gardenersworld #fiveminutegardener #organicgardening #urbangardening #thehappygardeninglife #epicgardening #urbangardenersrepublic #thegoodlife

Just harvested this killer courgette! raw courgetti bolognese will be on the menu again this week 😋
Sunday ... Following our 1st Working Garden Party - I was definitely in the mood to keep up the momentum and headed down there to Sow , Water and transfer some food .  The rain shower has softened the soil , making it easier to manage , I'm still not heavy enough to put pressure on the digging fork but know how to use a hoe ... Dug up a few roots , banished some unwanted shoots and really had an opportunity to be thankful for the overnight process / progress .  Pumpkin's and Red Lentils look extremely happy , Herb Garden is letting off an abundance of mesmerising scents - yesterday it was Lavender - today Peppermint and Curry Leaf , Sage is looking for a new home and tomatoes look pretty healthy . Sowed some lettuce and on the look out for some Jasmine and Geranium .  All in all a beauty full weekend indeed ☀️😍☀️ If you're interested , do get in contact at info@punchandjuicy.org.uk  #allotmentlife #progress #growth #momentum #momentofpeace #naturalenvironment #goslow #snail #naturesmessages #cherrytomato #snailspace #consistencyiskey #allotmentsoflondon #laterecap #allcreaturesgreatandsmall #naturesmessages #ecotherapy #roottomarket #naturescure #herbs #herbgarden #growyourown #gratitude

Jag valde en mixad påse mangold mest för att det var fint men nu är det väldigt kul att kunna miniutvärdera tre olika sorter.  Den röda sorten har tyvärr gett tunnast stjälk och trådigast blad som nästan påminner om rödbeteblast.  Den gula sorten har gett rätt fin skörd. Trevliga blad med lite mer ”köttig” struktur på bladen, runda små/medelstora stjälkar. Lite delikatesskänsla. Den vita sorten har störst och finast blad som är glansiga och har en god ”köttig” struktur på bladen. Stjälkarna är ovala och stora men inte träiga eller tråkiga. Bra att odla för riklig skörd.  Nästa gång vill jag odla en storbladig variant som ger mycket mat. Vill minnas att @skillnadens har odlat någon gigantisk variant så någon kanske sitter inne med tips på en god och produktiv sort? 😍  #magold #odla #odla2018 #odlamedbarn #allotment #allotmentlife #gardening

I decided to video #26a tonight as I'm going to be harvesting quite alot over the next few days and have a general tidy up. Fingers crossed we will have some rain soon as like many of the plotters here, I have found that alot of the veg hasn't had the time to mature but has already started to bolt 😫  This year hasn't been the best, mainly for the lack of germination of nearly every seed not to mention the mass slug infestation and the freak weather conditions to name but a few. Whilst slapping on the factor50 I will be doing a rain dance tomorrow 🌧💃 well, it's worth a shot!! #allotmentadventures #allbymyself #allotmentlife #organicgardening #organicgardener #gyo #eatfresh #happyplace #nighttime #summernights #countryside #gardening #vegetables #fruit #flowersofinstagram #26a #lovethisplace #pieceandquiet #chillout #secondhome #thisgirlcan #greenfingers #raisedbeds #greenhouse

Spent the evening harvesting our onions thought this was a lovely site while sitting in a t-shirt #allotment #summer #summernights #summernights🌙 #allotmentgarden #allotments #allotmentlife🌱 #allotmentlife #moon
Something I’ve been thinking about lately is starting a blog, don’t really know why? Writing ain’t something that has ever interested me. I thought doing videos for igtv or YouTube would be more me. They possibly would be if I could figure out how to edit them properly (so complicated and I’m not technically minded 😂) Think I’ll stick to insta stories. So I took the plunge and wrote my first blog piece. The link to it is in my bio (feel like such a blog wanker even saying that 🙄) It’s titled “beginnings”because it’s the beginning of me blogging talking about me beginning allotmenting (that’s some black magic matrix level shit right there!) It’s just a little something to read on the train, on the loo or wherever you like to do your reading. I hope you enjoy it!  #giy #gyo #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentblog #blog #gardenblogger #growfood #growfromseed #growyourownfood #beginnings #blogpost #sustainableliving #shesowsseeds

Midnight feast... Yum. Fresh from the pod. #poddedpeas #sosweet #freshpeas #yum #growyourown #allotmentlife #allotment
Phew, another scorcher here in the south of England. We went to the plot over the hottest time of day....mad dogs and all...! The welcome shade under the apple tree was much appreciated as we stripped blackcurrants from pruned canes. 3 tubs today plus a few potatoes and the first of my 'Spring' onions ; )  Plus my neighbor passed me a book that belonged to her grandmother. I've not seen this one before and I shall enjoy reading it. Aren't people kind!  Happy Sunday to you all x * * #sundays #ontheplot #plot71b  #allotmentlife  #allotment #homegrown #gratitude #blackcurrants #plasticfreejuly #local #fruit #lowimpactliving #vintagebook #sewing
I've never been on the allotment as late as this before!... I just can't stand the heat in the day... I'm so fair-skinned that I could burn on a sunny winter's day so this heatwave has been/is a challenge for me. Certainly not what I expected from our first growing season... But, we've already learnt so much. #allotmentbynight #allotment #allotmentlife #flowers #hot #goodnight #loadsofwatering
