In November, it's important to continue mowing your lawn, but at a slightly lower height than during the summer months.
Welcome to November, it has certainly been a very wet October. The milder weather has kept things going a bit longer which has felt a little unusual. The sunny days have been very welcome and how beautiful to feel the warmth of the sun. We got the winter duvets out of our loft at the weekend and it's been lovely to feel cosy again. The sheepskin slippers have been dusted off too!
It’s officially Autumn and aren’t we feeling it, quite a change and it feels quite sudden not allowing time for us to acclimate. One weekend we were sat watching our son at a football match almost getting sunstroke and the next match it was as winter boots and a down coat!
Welcome to September! The weather during August was a bit hit-and-miss, but the first weekend of September is forecast to be beautiful, so we might squeeze one more barbecue in before the summer is out!
Organic, sustainable, free-range…phew all these terms can get confusing when you are doing the weekly food shop! You know they are positive labels on the food that you are buying, but what do they mean?
Welcome to November! The weather has been very changeable lately, the milder days have been very pleasant. The year seems to have gone so fast! Christmas is around the corner and we have plans for what we want to sow and grow in the allotment next year.
Welcome to Autumn! It has been a bit of a shock to the system having a chill in the air after we have been used to almost tropical temperatures. Still, there's days where we are not sure if we should be putting away the summer wardrobe just yet. This time before the cold really starts to hit is quite pleasant. Fresh and cool first thing then warming up late morning, perfect for a stroll. We are making the most of being able to get the washing out on the line still!
How many trees can you name? Do you recognise a tree variety from its leaves, nuts or seeds? I think we all wish we had better knowledge of our natural surroundings, and this month could give you the chance to get to know your green neighbourhood giants a little better!
