Had a little peek at my Chinese Artichokes. When’s the optimal time to dig up? Foliage has gone now...

Disturbed a toad in my allotment tidying and it kept retreating to the next pile of stuff that needed shifting. Now at the back of the plot where I've heaped the woody waste - to be left entirely in peace!

Yes OK. I don't know the variety though. Did you inherit them?

We are living in a nature and climate emergency- WHY can you still buy Irish Moss Peat from you local garden centre?

Now is the perfect time to plant an apple tree (even in a small garden you can squeeze in one on dwarf rootstock). If you aren't sure which variety might be right for you, here are a few ideas.

Bulbine bulbosa. An interesting Australian lily that I'm very slowly reproducing to build up as an edible crop. It's a slow process. Everything above ground is poisonous and everything below ground is edible.

So rewarding to bake an apple pie using our own apples. This is from one that we grow - an old 1856 variety from Holland ‘Rode Boskoop’. It’s still grown in Europe but hard to find here. I ❤️ it for pies!! So tasty 😋😋😋

My present one is just one of those compost daleks. Certainly very wormy! I can't quite imagine having one in the house - perhaps even as part of the furniture - as a worm farming book we have suggests!

Toronto yuzu harvest. Yesterday I put my citrus into the greenhouse for the winter. They'll stay around the freezing mark for winter. Yuzu is a great cold-climate citrus, and can actually go down to about -12C.

Roadside breathtaking in Wilts, Hants and Berks. Dogwoods, maples (field and Norway) and gean fantastic but this garden winged spindle and sweet gum looks unreal! Get out and see it if you can.

Wood-store shaping up. Required a purchase of new nails, damn it! Roof will be an onion-dryer and water-collector too naturally :)

How long before curcuriosity gets the better of me? I want to crack these open and see whether there are any viable seeds inside. Descriptions refer to the potential parentage of the seeds within. Bottom left: Cucurbita ficifolia x foetidissima x ?; bott…

Yes, I remember Tier 3, The name, because one afternoon Of chill the buck stopped there Unwontedly. It was October. The North hissed. Someone cleared their desk. No one left and no one came To the bare pub. What I saw Was Tier 3: only the name Or two-thirds of it.
