October 3rd Week

According to My Middleton in Dig On For Victory we have 8 tasks this week :

1) Order of Using Vegetables. - There are still ample fresh vegetable supplies growing in the garden before using food in store. Focus on consuming cabbages, cauliflowers and savoys before touching the leeks. 

2) Prepare Potting Composts. - The best is loam created from turves that have been stacked for 12 months before using. Failing that soil should be stacked in layers with manure in between. 

3) Clean Outside Greenhouse. - Wash both the inside and outside of the greenhouse. Scrub off summer shading to allow maximum daylight through the winter.Clean coldframe lights from grime too.

4) Make Fruit Plan. - If planting fruit for the first time, make a plan. Choose varieties that will succeed in your climate and that will help pollinate each other.

5) How to Destroy Red Spider. - Where red spider mite has caused damage. collect the leaves once fallen and burn.

6) Protect Carrots. - Carrots growing in coldframes should now be protected with the cover.

7) Earth-up Celery. - Do the final earthing up of celery.

8) Take Dead Leaves from Rhubarb; Plant Late Coleworts in South; Prune and Tie-in Blackberries. -
