September Has Been and Gone

September Has Been and Gone

The September view of the garden from the back (SE) corner.

The end of September also means the end of the first month of Spring in Scarecrow's Garden and I am so wanting to start Spring Planting. However we still have potential for frosts so I shall hold off for a few more weeks. Daytime temps are rising but mornings are still quite cool.

The Potatoes are just about ready to take themselves out of the Greenhouse

Many seedlings are being potted up and on to be ready for planting out. They are now spending their days outside for hardening off. Cuttings are taken as I clear and tidy so I have more hardy plants to fill any gaps around the garden.
