We had a great day yesterday, harvest loads of spring cabbage and new potatoes from the poly tunnel to make way for planting tomatoes and cucumbers. Delicious!
Also for those interested in the workings of the garden we had out first proper meeting of Wednesday volunteers last week which was great and the notes are up on the meetings page. Next meeting 19th June 1:30. There will also be cake as we celebrate midsummer.
More exciting news – I can confirm that the solar panels are fully installed on the Tower of Power, the pump has arrived and is in place and all that remains is for them to be connected and then Bristol’s newest and most ecological water feature can kick into action! Hopefully providing water for 200 plot holders and irrigating polytunnels whilst we sit back and feast on
And spread the word we’re selling plants and welcoming kids for pond dipping at our open day/work day on June 8th as part of the Get Growing Trail. The tadpoles are chubby spotty beauties at the moment and just about to start growing legs – they grow up so fast!
See you in the garden,
