Show Notes

Long summer days, high temperatures and maximum sunlight are the hall marks of a good summer (lets hope for a little rain though!). The Summer of 2022 is eagerly awaited by all the keen gardens up and down the UK as herbaceous borders, roses, veg gardens and meadows are awash with new plantings, flower and a general sense of abundance that only Summer can bring. Whereas Spring is a steady ramping of growth the Summer is a time for 'peak  plant' followed by the mellow and relaxed waning into Autumn - so slap on that sun scream, stick on your favourite summer hat and get out and enjoy all the hard work you've undertaken in your garden!

Lucy realised that its been quite some time since we talked Fruit and Veg, which Saul thought was impossible with the Queen and Fruit and Veg - so its time to set the record straight as we bring you up-to-date with what is going on in our respective Kitchen Gardens. Expect tales of the acceptance of mice, blooming large artichokes and catch cropping to the maximum. June is always that time when the Kitchen Garden seems to be running at full steam and soon enough tasty Veg and Fruit will be the norm from our productive plots.
