Hej! Przypominamy nasze zeszłoroczne hasło "Tu mieszkają jeże!". Kilka podstawowych zasad: 🦔 zostawiamy dziury w ogrodzeniach (jeżostrady), 🦔 zostawiamy sterty liści w zacisznych miejscach ogrodu lub/i stawiamy domki dla jeży, 🦔 uważamy kosząc! 🦔 absolutnie nie palimy liści i gałęzi w ogrodzie! Liście to genialny materiał do użyźnienia gleby/kompostowania/ściółkowania, 🦔 nie hałasujemy (nie odpalamy petard), 🦔 uważamy na nasze domowe futrzaki, żeby nie polowały na jeże czy ptaki. #rozkwit #samrozkwit #jez #jeze #hedgehog #hedgehogs #garden #allotmentgarden #animals #ecology #ogrod #zoopolis

Well have you ever. The summer heatwave made me move the hens to a cooler part of the garden, shaded by the trees. Soon all kinds of plants started growing on the spot where they used to live. Lots of tomatoes too. Winter is coming, and I know these spontaneous seedlings will never get enough time to grow any fruit. Today I noticed some of them have started flowering. The urge to grow is so strong I cannot feel anything but respect. Maybe I will put one of them in a pot. Give it a try. . . #tomatenplanten #growyourownfood #bokehlicious #allotmentgarden #sustainablegardening #alittlebeautyeveryday #everydaymagic #mygardentoday #dehofhouding #naturalgarden #gardenersworld #countrygarden #cottagegarden #gardeningmakesmehappy #urbangardenersrepublic #happygardeninglife #ourgarden

Cobaea Scandens ("cup & saucer" plant) just in bloom now at the back of the LNAA flower border.... amazingly this was a self-sown volunteer from last year's plants...just shows what a warm year it's been for this tender, usually 'non-hardy in UK' beauty to flourish.

Good morning. I came down to the plot this morning with the intention of spreading the composted leaf mould in the black plastic bags there but it's so windy that I decided it wouldn't be a very productive operation. These are leaves from last year's leaf fall - I just packed them in the bags, punched in a few holes and kept them at the back of the allotment for the whole year. I did it because @themontydon told me to on an episode of Gardener's World last year 😊 I don't think they're as mulchy as I would have expected them to be, they still look a bit dry to me. But who am I to argue. So hopefully I will dig them in when the winds have died down and they'll help protect the empty beds over winter. #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #urbangardening #growyourownfood #allotmentlove #vegpatch #veggies #organic #plantbased #ediblegarden #communitygarden #vegetablegarden #homegrown #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #potager #orto #leafmould #mulch

March of the rocket. Just a week after sowing the seeds the rocket seedlings are the latest art work on the plot. These will spend the winter in the cold frame providing fresh saladings for the next few months. Its surprising how much they grow even in the darkest and coldest winters. . . . . . . . . . . . #rocket #seedlings #saladcrop #wintersalad #growyourart #stripes #growsalad #abstractart #organicgrowing #organicgardening #allotmentgarden #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #londongrown #londonallotments #fromplottoplate #eatseasonal #sowingseeds #coldframe #wintercrops #saladings #homegrown #homegrownfood #growlondon

Glorious autumn on the allotment. Granted, the beds are now emptying. Parsnips, Swede, chard, kale and some Chinese red cabbage remain. However, a day in this weather; this golden sunshine and cool air, is something I treasure. I've cleaned the beds of weeds. I've built new ones and I now have the adventure of taking on the final 30 square feet of garden into its new productive future. A shed up in the top right corner. Veg beds on the left. Flower beds and even an archway with roses. That's the vision. And if you start with a vision, you at least start on a good footing. . . . . . #allotmentlove #allotmentgarden #growyourownveggies #autumn #veggarden #gardenblogger #grownfromseed #allotmenteering #allotments #digforvictory

I can't be the only one who gets excited about cabbages!? It might be full of holes, but this is my first allotment-grown cabbage! I've never had much luck with brassicas. If it isn't the slugs, it's the historically poor soil - which provides me with some crops, but small ones at that. So, I'm proud to be able to present one of two very large homegrown cabbages. This one is going into curries and I will be roasting the sweeter heart for a lovely autumnal salad 😋 . . . . . #garden #cabbage #growyourownfood #growfood #kitchengarden #vegpatch #brassica #greens #urbangardenersrepublic #instadaily #instagardenlovers #garden_feature #thehappygardeninglife #gardenme #plantparenthood #plantsmakemehappy #inmygarden #mygarden #lovemygarden #tuesdaymotivation #homegrownveggies #plantbasedfood #veggies #plantbased #grownwithlove #everyonecangrowtheirown #growsomethinggreen #allotmentgarden #allotmentuk #allotment

As my last post about kale prompted so many questions, I thought I’d do a whole post about this glorious vegetable. The varieties I’m growing are red ruble, cavolo nero, scarlet kale and dwarf green curled. I prefer growing kale to overwinter as I find it more tender after the first frost. I’ve had lots of messages saying what’s the secret... and there isn’t one that I known of, just feed feed feed. 🙈For those who find kale tough, I like to marinate it overnight with olive oil and lemon so it wilts. Cavolo Nero always gets turned into green sauce here - boiled and whizzed up with garlic and hard cheese. When we make vegetable bowls for supper we throw some kale in to roast for the last few minutes for added crunch. We covered ours this year to protect from the pigeons, but whitefly are still work in progress. I’m going for a blasting with water approach, but it’s something to improve on next year! Have a fab day 💛 My dinosaur shirt, to match my dinosaur kale is another @oxfordshirtco 🦕🦖 #gifted #MyOxfordShirt #kale #freshgreens #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #veggiepatch #homegrown #gyo #growyourownveggies #homegrownfood #greenthumb #growfoodnotlawns #gardengram #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #lovegardening #gardenblogger #gardenlovers

Vandaag maar eens de paksoi oogsten. Zo grappig. Twee weken terug waren de bladeren helemaal bleek geworden. Ik dacht omdat ik te laat geoogst had. Toen heb ik ze water gegeven en paar dagen later waren ze weer prachtig donkergroen💚 Weer wat geleerd:-) Vanavond lekker Thaise curry eten👌🏼Fotocredit: @dyvemedia ———————————————————————— Today I’m gonna harvest the paksoi. Two weeks ago the leaves were al turning light green. I thought it was because I was too late with harvesting. But then I gave them some water and a few days later the leaves were all dark green again💚 Learned something new again. Tonight there’s Thai curry on the menu.

Time to cut back the sunchokes. Or, is it? I don’t really know how the tubers have done this summer. I guess I should dig around and see what’s going on. This is my first time with these so I’m not sure. What I do know is that we’ve broken out the flannel sheets in the house and there’s no going back!

I am looking a bit serious today but it is a serious job to guard this allotment garden yard. 😤😄💕💕 It was such a sunny and warm afternoon. A good day to check some final things and get the cottage ready for the winter. We also found my favourite ball! Mom threw it to the apple tree some time ago and we could not locate it even we tried so hard together. Now, once the leafs 🍂 are nearly fallen down, it was sitting there like on the trade. And yes, I like to keep my butt warm and this very visible Jump Pomppa does the job perfectly. A good sunny fall afternoon, as I smell 🐽 the winter 🌬arriving. 🍂☀️ ~ ~ #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #talinsiirtolapuutarha #jumppapomppa #pomppa #espanjanvesikoira #jwdogball #swd #spanishwaterdogsofinstagram #waterdogs #perroklubben #instadogs

Lingon som marktäckare under hallonen, kan det vara något? Värt ett försök när en hittar några plantor på rea. Annars ser det ut som sig bör på odlingslotten. Kålen är jättefin. Ruccola och vintersallat likaså. Wasabiruccola, persilja, gräslök, mangold, nyzeeland-spenat och piplök ger en bra sallat. Rödbetorna tar jag vid tillfälle. #odlingslott #allotmentgarden #permakultur #permaculture #permaculturedesign

... And quite a few turnips too. Nature has been so bountiful and giving this year with our amazing summer and mild autumn. I'm so conflicted - on the one hand I don't want to let my vegetable garden go but on the other I'm looking forward to the cosy nights in front of a fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate and the muffled sound of snow falling outside🔥🌨️ Hope you enjoy these last few days 😊 #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #urbangardening #growyourownfood #allotmentlove #vegpatch #veggies #organic #plantbased #ediblegarden #communitygarden #vegetablegarden #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #potager #harvest #plenty #homegrown #turnips #seasons #autumn #autumngarden

Morning folks, hope everyone's having a great start to the week 😊 Radio 4 tells me we're about to have an "Arctic Blast" bringing this ridiculously mild October to a rather sharp end. So I thought I should be pulling up what's left of the root veg - which is apparently quite a lot 😂 So the last of the spring sown carrots... #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #urbangardening #growyourownfood #allotmentlove #vegpatch #veggies #organic #plantbased #ediblegarden #communitygarden #vegetablegarden #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #potager #harvest #homegrown #carrots #autumn #autumngarden

Re-arranging things inside the greenhouse. Out go the tomatoes, in come the chrysanthemums.

Patience. Do you like planning your garden? Nature rarely follows the course that you set out for it. My peas this year are a prime example of this. I started my first seeds off way back in April, only to have them eaten by mice - and then all subsequent sowings eaten by slugs. It was only in July that my final attempt proved their worth - and here, after a summer filled with glorious heat, they open their flowers and set their pods. . . . . . #garden #peas #pea #plantsofinstagram #growyourown

De radijsjes dreigden te mislukken. Er kwamen maar geen echte knolletjes aan. Dus besloot ik een klein handje kali te geven. Met dit als resultaat 😁 Werkt ook perfect als je worteltjes of bietjes het niet zo goed doen👌🏼Fotocredit: @dyvemedia ———————————————————————— 🇬🇧 The radish was nog doing well. There were only roots and nothing else. I used some potassium and look at them now! This works with carrots and beet roots as well💚

Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a species of Hibiscus probably native to West Africa,used for the production of bast fibre and as an infusion, in which it may be known as carcade. Hibiscus, specifically roselle, has been used in folk medicine as a diuretic and mild laxative. Hibiscus tea contains 15–30% organic acids, including citric acid, malic acid, and tartaric acid. It also contains acidic polysaccharides and flavonoid glycosides, such as cyanidin and delphinidin, that give it its characteristic deep red colour.. . . #growyourown #groworganic #growyourfood #garden #gardening #gardeningisfun #gardens #gardener #gardenlife #gardenlove #gardencity #organicfood #organicgarden #organicgardening #organiclife #plantstrong #plantsofinstagram #gardenofinstagram #allotmentgarden #allotmentgrown #californiagrown #happygarden #naturelover #happyweekend #urbangarden #urbangardening #hibiscus #roselle #thehappygardeninglife #гибискус
