Allotment Diary (February – Week 3)
I’m trying something new with my diary, which can now be found here. Rather than just publish it in written form, I’m also going to record a new weekly video, called “The gardening week’.
The diary, will be the show notes for the video
I so enjoy these garden chats each week and always learn something. It’s our time to plant potatoes though I haven’t done so for a couple decades. Usually timing and having the garden space. I might try a small red potato or Yukon gold. I usually direct seed radishes but yours really get off to a good start seeded indoors. They do like consistent moisture and our weather can vary from warm to cool in the winter months. Maybe it’s not too late to try. Opossum damage ripped up my last sowing.
Radish can cope with most weather provided they get moisture and lots of light. I find they take too much time planted direct in winter and early spring.
I enjoyed that chat too Steve! Like Sue, I am interested in your radish starting indoors. I might try a few here since things are so wet and soggy early in the season here when they need to be sown outdoors. I also liked the kitty joining you mid-video!
Thanks Dave, module sown radish are really worthwhile, nearly doubles the harvest volume early in the season, mine will be ready next week : All the best – Steve
