JOBS FOR THE MONTH

TASKS FOR YOUR VEGETABLE PATCH IN SEPTEMBER BY MARTIN FISH

10 MINUTE JOBS

PICK APPLES

The first apples of the season are ripening now and need to be picked as soon as the fruits leave the trees when given a gentle twist. The exact time of ripening varies on location and the fruits on the sunny side of the tree ripen first.

PREPARE SOIL

Before you plant spring cabbage plants, prepare the ground by forking it over lightly and tread the area to firm the soil. Sprinkle a light dressing of general fertiliser such as Growmore or pelleted poultry manure to give the plants a good start.

DRY ‘BORLOTTI’ BEANS

If you intend to pick and dry beans such as Borlotti for winter use, pick the beans when they are fully formed and the pods are dry. Do this on a fine day and pop open the pods before laying them in a tray to carry on drying.

About Kitchen Garden Magazine

*** 5 Brand new videos inside! - for more, see here: https://www.youtube.com/kitchengardenmagazine?sub_confirmation=1 *** September is traditionally a time for harvesting summer crops of fruit and vegetables and preserving any gluts so we can enjoy them through the long winter. However, there is still plenty we can do to stretch the growing season to ensure an early and productive start next year. A cold frame is helpful to extend the growing season and in this issue Joyce Russell shows you how to make one. Soil is our most precious commodity in the garden and after a year of hard work it deserves a bit of TLC. So this month we have two features, starting on pages 42 and 73, dedicated to helping you keep your soil fighting fit. There is plenty of info on crops, too; expert grower Rob Smith has some great top tips on growing broccoli and calabrese, while this month our resident fruit expert David Patch turns his attention to figs. Finally don’t forget to enter our great fun Passionate Plotter and Wonky Veg competitions for the chance to win some super prizes!
