The dry warm weather continues...
It has been another warm and dry week in the Kitchen Garden so once again watering has become a priority. Its a big job trying to keep the plants hydrated through this particularly dry spell.
Watering, watering and more watering!
With no decent rainfall and higher than average temperatures across the last week, the main job has been watering, watering and more watering!
RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2020
We had planned to be on our stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this week and what glorious weather we would have had, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic the show had to be cancelled for the first time since World War 2.
Putting the new brassica cage to good use.
It has been another busy week in the kitchen garden planting out all the brassicas in our newly built cage, with sprouts, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower all being planted out.
Our new Brassica Cage
The week started with building a larger net cage for the brassicas. Building the frame was the easy part, shaping and cutting the net to fit took its time but finally it was built.
Finally some rain in the kitchen garden!
Finally, we have had rain and everywhere is looking so much better for it, with the kitchen garden really bursting into life over the last few days.
Another warm week in the Kitchen Garden
It has been another busy week in the kitchen garden. Peas that had been started in the greenhouse and then transferred to the cold frame, had grown sufficiently to be planted outside. These have been planted opposite the peas that were sown directly into the ground and are going to run up the vintage pea frame.
Lots of growing in the Kitchen Garden
It has been a short week after the long Easter bank holiday, a very different Easter to what we are use to as we are still in lockdown. As we still have not had any decent rain it meant this week a lot of watering especially in the kitchen garden.
