July Allotment Tour & Harvest 2019 / Homegrown Garden

After a gloomy June, the month of July has yo-yoed between wet weather and record breaking high temperatures during a brief heat wave. Join me in this month’s tour to harvest some of the crops that are ready for picking as we take a look around the plot to discover what flowers are blooming and vegetables are growing! I also reveal my newly painted gate and my amazing new pallet compost bin design that has got me excited about composting again.

Since recording this video I reached 10,000 subscribers! If you are one of them reading this, thank you so much for joining me in my allotment garden and for supporting my channel.

    So thrilled to have discovered your lovely channel! I absolutely love gardening and would always rather be in the garden! Your allotment looks so good… Makes me so eager to move to our new home and start my garden!

  16. Wanda Cordero on March 4, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I LOVE your Garden!!! I am new in your Channel and I love the way you present every inch of your garden! You are so clever in the way you are experimenting. For the Rats you need a good Female Cat because they put their scent in every corner and that make the rats go away in a natural way. no matter you fed the cat their instincts are to hunt! for the ants I think neem oil will help. I have squirrels and bunnies that eat all my lettuce! haaaa but I love the squirrels and bunnies so I need to put some metal mesh over every lettuce crops now. I am learning to grow my own vegetables and I dream to have my own harvest! Your harvesting is very cool and pretty too for a great picture! Congrats! I dream to harvest this year 2020! some crops. Thanks for your sharing and Blessings in your house and garden and life!!

    There is a rat poison that will not harm other animals, its called RatX, see Shawn Woods youtube videos for more info

  19. napeekapun pimtongnara on March 4, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    I can feel that your garden is really complete and beautiful. It can tell if you are a nature lover. I think your garden is really your big world. Because I heard birds and saw many insects flying. I think your garden is designed in style, beauty and warmth.

    What variety are those lettuce??? 😍

  32. Nicholle Christine Edwards on March 4, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    as Focus shifts- life turned to blooms. 🌹

  33. Terry McGeary on March 4, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Wow! Those container potatoes! Definitely, the way to go. I haven’t got lots of room so a few big pots on the patio would let me use the ground for other things. I was inspired seeing Charles Dowding’s videos too. What a nice chap. I have planted beetroot through cardboard too. Seeing your Sarracenia makes me want to try them again. I’ll check them out if I dare visit our nearest garden centre. My Drosera is continuing to unfurl its flowers today. Your guitar music (peppers) is one of my favourites (along with English Country Garden, though not the one we all think of!). Thanks again.

  40. Tekno Tony on March 4, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    You have beautiful energy and a beautiful allotment.

  41. Nelson Flores on March 4, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    to control the ants , there is a product called , ant bait granulates , that you spraed all over the area and the ants pick it up and carry to their nest and share and the whole nest die.

  42. THE POTANIST on March 4, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    if you decide to make another compost bin you should stay with the spacing on the sides instead of closing up the gaps. the ventilation really helps. I rebuilt my bin you can check it out on my channel. but I consistently reach temperatures of 160 for weeks at a a time. Btw love the allotment keep up the great work!

    You might consider introducing some snake habitat. Logs and rocks with gaps should do it. Then offer a live bounty to the neighborhood kids to collect some for you for release into your garden. If I’m correct three of the four snake species native and invasive to Britain except the grass snake feed on rodents. You may have some lizards that do as well. If not try this:
