August gardening

The garden isn’t looking so august at present, but after our get together on 26th, the rhubarb, asparagus, herbs and blueberries will hopefully produce awe-inspiring results!

The August notes are now posted and there’s a bit of a basic explanation of how and why the planting notes guide specific cultivation and planting activities for particular plants. Read more here. This month is a rush to complete those winter jobs that you didn’t get to, because, well, it was just too cold and dank to get out in the garden… Thinking ahead to spring as well, towards the end of this month, I’ll be starting some spring seeds, with fingers crossed.

Too late to alert you to the Produce Exchange, held last Saturday but not too late to get active in the garden… and there’s a second moon opposite saturn this month as well. Enjoy the august garden.
