July on Your Plot
Now is the time to begin to harvest:
Courgette's, Mustard seeds, Ridge Cucumber, Peas, Sweetcorn, French Beans (dwarf), Celery and Garlic.
Stop watering Onions .
Transplant Kale to it’s final position.
Ensure Fruit trees have plenty of moisture at their roots
Water once a week if it doesn’t rain and water well.
Pick any early runner beans before the seed pods begin to bulge (or the skins toughen and get stringy).
Pick them regularly to keep the beans coming.
Keep the plot well watered during hot sunny spells.
Avoid watering potato and tomato leaves to try and avoid Blight at this time of year
Lift some potato plants, to gauge progress.
Keep main crop plants well watered, as dry conditions reduce yield and potato size.
Sow potatoes now for Christmas crops!
Lettuces and other salad crops: Succession sow more lettuce, rocket, land cress, corn salad, and other salad leaves for an ongoing supply in the autumn.
Look out for early signs of Blight
Watch out for the signs of Blight on tomatoes and potatoes.
We have had a report from a plot holder that he has had to
deal with an early case of blight. (See photo opposite)
