Live day 3: Bokashi and new raised beds
Fall is such a nice season for making new garden beds. Do plenty! In today's live stream at YouTube, I create a new raised bed - with one hand - and praise the compost I get from bokashi.
Live day 2: Spinach and lettuce in my polytunnel
I got a question after yesterday's live stream: Can I grow spinach and lettuce in my polytunnel right now? Hey! You know me, right?!? There is always something to sow and plant in the garden and spinach and lettuce are great for my polytunnel in fall.
Live day 1: Things I harvest in October
I made a challenge for this week: I will do one live stream on YouTube each day. Today I tried to show you some of the things I can harvest in October.
Next week: Live on YouTube every day!
It's time for another week of live streaming on my YouTube channel! I have a few subjects in mind, but please let me know if there's anything you would like to see.
Gardening Calendar: What I sow in October
You don't have to stop growing vegetables just because it's getting colder outside. I actually sow in October. These are my best picks for sowing new seeds in fall!
Protect your crops with plant cover
As you might know by now, I'm a firm believer in growing vegetables all year long. Using plant cover is one great way to make the growing season outside just a little bit longer. This is how I use it.
Growing the Lucullus Swiss chard
This is my first year growing the Lucullus Swiss chard. I'm actually surprised by how well it turned out! The leaves are thin and tender, and the plants are quite small. But the taste! You simply have to try it.
Fertilizing carrots with bokashi
These carrots look completely unreal! Some of you might think they will taste bad because of their large size. But this is actually not the case! Fertilizing carrots with bokashi compost seems to do the trick.
Collecting sea kale seeds
I picked plenty of sea kale seeds on my trip to the Swedish west coast, and I hope that I will be able to grow it at home! This kale is not only delicious, it reminds me of my childhood too.
Garden DIY: Building a cold frame lid
My large cold frame (9 ft 10 x 3 ft 3) is covered by two smart lids that I built myself. Building a cold frame lid is actually really easy and helps you prolong the growing season. Try it!
My favorite lettuce
I know that lettuce is probably a favorite for many of you. Not very surprising of course considering how good and refreshing lettuce can be.
