Six on Saturday – 17 December 2022

In Scotland, November was a month of near constant rain, and the start of December began with a severe cold snap. Despite being prepared this year and having onion sets and spring bulbs since September, the weather has prevented me getting these in the ground. If the weather warms I hope to plant them before… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 17 December 2022

Another Saturday, and little progress here. The weather remains surprisingly warm, but almost constant rain has kept me out of the garden. Finally managed to start tidying up today, but many tasks remain before everything is bedded down for winter. Anyway, my six: 1. Potatoes Today I finally emptied out my remaining potato sacks. At… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 12 November 2022

It has been pishing down in Glasgow for almost a full month. I actually like rain, but at the moment the ground is sodden, any remaining plants are completely battered and my garden task list for autumn severely delayed. I have had onion sets and garlic ready to plant since the end of September, but… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 5 November 2022

My goodness the last month has been busy. Has anyone else found 2022 to be the year of weddings? With all the postponements due to covid, my friends and family are only now catching up. A lot of fun, but not a lot of time for gardening! Near constant rain has battered the garden this… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 8 October 2022

Today started with rain, but after a cooling period, has turned into another scorcher. These cloudless sunny days have been lovely, but the hotter temperatures are a bit of a struggle. Instead of attempting to work through it, I completed my garden tasks this morning and am now basking in the shade while enjoying this… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 13 August 2022

May was a surprisingly busy and hectic time as weekends quickly filled up with events, catch-ups and visits with friends and family. In the Wilder household we are still getting used to the lifted restrictions and are cautiously returning to our more social schedule. Somehow I had forgotten how busy it could be! For this… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 4 June 2022

Today I have been out planting strawberries, sowing leeks direct, potting on various plants (tomatoes, sweet peas, sunflowers) and putting others into cold frames to start hardening them off. Despite keeping an eye on the polytunnel daily, a hurried feeling is bubbling away in my chest. Once again have I left potting on too late?… Continue reading Six on Saturday – 7 May 2022
