Climate Change


Most gardeners keep a "weather eye" open. Like it or not global changes to our climate are taking place. I thought that various facts and figures, myths and gossip relating to climate change would be relevant to readers of this blog. So here goes.

I am no expert on climate changes but I know that nature is changing (and maybe NOT adapting to unseen forces in our current atmosphere), from the changes I see everyday, to plant and insect behaviour and weather conditions when I am working outdoors on my allotments.
Climate change, worldwide, is a vast and complicated subject, therefor I have decided to embed videos rather than use the huge amount of text needed just to scratch the surface of this issue. A picture is worth a thousand words and the following pictures don't start with carbon emissions.  Accidents don't just happen, several factors usually combine to cause them. This planet would still live without human beings, but can we live without this planet??

The Last Post

As my readers will already know I moved to a new house (bungalow) last year. Much work, updating, d. i. y. and a vast amount of gardening and landscaping needed doing to the property. Most of the gardening to the rear of the property has now been completed just as the Wintery weather begins to take hold. A good sized vegetable plot is one of the features in the back garden prepared and ready to be utilised starting with next Springs sowing and planting. With this in mind I spent a couple of weeks last month tidying up N1 plot before deciding to give it up just over a week ago. Due to the amount of work on the house and gardens this year my blog posts have been just about none existent. Over the past seven years I have enjoyed reading many other allotment/gardening blogs and meeting/talking to lots of other gardeners on the "net". I hope my blog has been of interest and some use too, to all who have spent their time looking in on it. Good luck and best wishes to all you love…

2. If the weather in your area has been dry enough lately and your soil is not wet and heavy, now is the time for some rotavating/digging, adding compost/manure as required to the soil.

3. Air temperatures are still relatively unpredictable in my neck of the woods at present, it may be worth checking the germination temperatures of various seeds before sowing takes place.

4. Easter weekend was the traditional time for getting your potato tubers into the ground. Don't put them into wet soil and remember Easter weekend is early this year so another couple of weeks wait isn't a problem.

5. More overnight frosts have been happening in this part of the country recently, compared to the past few years. So if you are sowing planting this month keep cloches or other plant protection equipment a…
