danlamoon blogged An Indian Summer Garden Sunday

An Indian Summer Garden Sunday

Sunday was an action packed day full of culture and gardening. An Indian Summer Festival down Leicester’s Cultural Corner was full of dance, music, food, mhendi, exhibitions workshops and stalls. The sun was shining and everybody was happy and chatty, which made the atmosphere wonderful.

One of the most fantastic performances was a Holi dance (which means festival of colours) whereby the dancers dressed in white with bright coloured scarfs were throwing bright colours everywhere and encouraged ..

Charlecote Park

Last Saturday we visited the beautiful Warwickshire Charlecote Park with its Tudor house and beautiful gardens. Although it was raining heavily on the m69 as we drove there,as we parked up, the sun was shining brightly.

At the visitor reception, we all had our membership cards scanned and stickers displayed ready to go into the park. As we left the reception a lady ran out saying ‘I have a proposal for you! Please can you take a GPS device so we can monitor where you go?’ We gladly agreed, th..

The plant that scares cats away!?

We have had trouble with cats for a while now. This year, not only have they trampled on the young salad leaves and pooed everywhere, they have been munching on our ‘Dawn to Dusk’ Nepeta Grandflora bush and we have had to protect it with a crate.

On our travels to Charlecote Park in Warwickshire the lovely little nursery was selling Coleus Caninus or ‘Scaredy Cat Variegated’ which omits a smell that is supposed to deter cats. We shall see if it works!

Coleus Caninus Scaredy Cat!

Physalis Peruviana flower!

Finally! We have two flowers on out Physalis plant! Our lovely friend Hannah Magenta gave us her small physalis plant last year. After repotting, it grew fast and strong and now it has two beautiful yellow flowers! It is very exciting as we will hopefully get some physalis fruit!

We have kept it indoors as it seems happy in the windowsill. Not sure if we should put it outside this summer due to the heavy showers we have been having! Please do comment if you have any tips and hints about how to gr..

Beautiful Wednesday BBQ down Lottie

Yesterday the sun came out and the air warmed up so we decided against an indoor gym session and headed down to Lottie to have a barbecue and potter around instead. As you can see from the pictures we had some lovely multigrain cobs and salad with delicious homegrown cucumber to accompany Dan’s meat and my veggie stuff. There is something wonderful about being able to spend our whole evening there to forget about the stresses of work, say hi to the plants veg and flowers and have a washing up free me..

danlamoon blogged Planting out Sunday

Planting out Sunday

A very productive day down Lottie today! Planted out the stronger sweetcorns (twelve of them!), french beans, some brassica and yellow tomatoes. We now have a mostly full bed of sprouts, cauliflowers, and some curly kale and broccoli that Jenny, the allotment committee Secretary very kindly gave us! The advice has been to really squash the soil and pack it down in brassica beds to get a nice strong root. It may have pest control benefits too!

Dan and I transplanted the melons today. Really strugg..

danlamoon blogged Growing Mung Beans and Other Sprouting Veg

Growing Mung Beans and Other Sprouting Veg

We found a packet of Mung Beans in one of our local garden centres and decided to try and grow some beansprouts for a stir fry. The directions on the packet were to soak the beans overnight and then spread out on some cotton wool on a dish and cover with cling film and then newspaper to keep the light out. They sprouted fine, although after about a week they started to go mouldy.

I found a growing book (in Aldi of all places) which explained what I was doing wrong. It is important to rinse the be..

Summer is Here!

The allotment and Urban Farm have come on in leaps and bounds since our last blog a couple of months ago. The hotter weather after the long, cold winter has brought lots of blossom, a boom in growth and lots of pests! Read below updates on our growing produce and flowers, problems and successes we have encountered.

Greenhouse and it’s exotic contents

The greenhouse has provided us with heat and shelter for many new seedlings. Although growing on a windowsill in the house seemed successful..
