July in the Garden

Well I have been doing quite a bit in the back garden. I got some compost delivered, it is made from Council Green Waste. That filled the potato boxes and then some left over. I have a terrible problem with oxalis, so I mulched with newspaper and then topped with the compost. So far it seems to be working, the paper will break down in about a year by then the oxalis will have hopefully given up!

Gailan or Chinese Brocoli, should eat it soon
Sowed a few seeds direct, mostly raddish, mizuna, lettuce and spring onion.

Still waiting for my strawberry and potatos from diggers, one day they will get here. The flower pots are the edging for a new bed. No dig of course.

I have only just found your blog and love your potato growing method. I have read about this before but it is great to see the photos of what you actually do. I have gone for potatoes in bags this year (from Diggers Club) - the cheats way! They are growing like crazy tho. Cheers, Lanie
