The beginning of the month is time to share bits and pieces from the vegetable garden via the Garden Share Collective. It comes around so quickly.
This month the theme in my garden is beautiful mess. It truly is a mess out there. Grass growing all over the place because I won't disturb the pumpkins rambling every which way. I like a beautiful mess now. I'm not sure how keen I'll be when it's time to tidy up said mess.

I'm waiting impatiently on pumpkins of all different sorts.

I'm sticking fairly close to the Gardenate guide this month so I have plenty to sow directly and into seed trays. I also have an order from Diggers on its way so I'll have spring flowering bulbs, garlic and such to go in too.
A mini disaster a couple of weeks ago, the little greenhouse with my seed trays blew over. Not all were lost but it is disheartening. The survivors are looking a little worse for their experience but maybe it will help toughen them up. Fingers crossed.
My list of things to do this month will probably take me longer than a month to complete. That's all my jobs, not just gardening. I'll stick with the gardening chores here.
- remove plants as they become non-productive
- tidy up compost bays and make compost
- weed herb garden path
- plant autumn/ winter vegetables
- and all of the things I've forgotten or don't know about yet
The Garden Share Collective runs on the first Monday of each Month
