Okay, the sun is almost shining, the allotment is only flooded a little bit… I declare this officially summer!! Which means The Evening Sessions will be starting next week:
Monday 2nd July we’ll be open 5-7pm
Where we’ll be working on the new polytunnel prep, watering, weeding and everyone can take home some lovely salad for their dinner.
The next Saturday opening day is 7th July (10-2) and we’re still there every Wednesday (10-4) and having fun getting to know our little patch of soggy land. The courgettes and tomatoes are looking a bit miserable but our cabbages are a joy to behold. We’ve been scoffing peas and mange tout for the last few weeks and the slugs haven’t realy worked out where we are so we’ve got carrots and all sorts on the way. Feel free to come along if you haven’t already or to pass on my details to anyone involved with community groups who might like to come for a visit or get involved
Also planned for the summer we’re planning on having a water butt bonanza, a fun Saturday where anyone can come and convert an old council wheelie bin into an effective water butt and get advice on installation as well as a chance to decorate your bins with long lasting, mess free vinyl designs. Date to be confirmed
And if all that isn’t exciting enough we’ve set a date for the Harvest Festival for 15th September. So please pop that in your dairies and if you know of any choirs or musicians who might like to sing/play/caper around and make the day special let me know.
See you in the garden,
