Summer arrives and the garden is full, with harvests happening and more to follow (this is zone 8a oceanic temperate). I show sowing and replanting to keep the harvests coming into winter, give tips on weeding to save time in the long run, and show you the summer compost heaps.
My garden is no dig and you see how few weeds are growing: we spend most of our time planting and picking, about two hours/week on weeding.
In the final scene I harvest beetroot, cabbage, asparagus, peas, pea shoots and courgettes, see thumbnail.
