I havested the rest of the carrots at the weekend. They werent as good as the first lot. As mentioned previously the soil had been much firmer and not light and fluffy compared to the first lot. I am pretty certain this was a result of the cheaper no brand potting mix used in these pots over two of the others. So lesson learnt, don't buy the cheapest potting mix.
I transplanted the ginger plant aswell as it was starting to expand the pot I had it in. Took a knob off it while i was at it and looks really good.
I have also bought amd planted some broccoli for some autumn winter crops.

At the moment im watering every few days but only the plants not out in the open. Im also using a seaweed fertiliser every week or two, to keep the plants with the required nutrients, before the warmth finally disappears. As a result the starwberries are spreading quickly and the parsley plant has been reinvigorated.

I found a good write up about growing ginger which is used fill.
The out of control parsley
The harvested Ginger
The Indian Myna...leaving after spending 10-15minutes searching through all the plants for bugs I normally wouldn't be happy about posting an image about a introduced pest but they do certainly help in removing the other pests I have.
