Say hello to our little froggy friend

BREAKING NEWS – first tomatoes ready in polytunnel and….. we finished our froggy pizza oven and it looks AMAZING! Image

Thank you to everyone who got involved digging, stamping, moulding and sculpting in the sunshine – it was so much fun and we are sooooo happy and proud of the end result.  Thanks to the lovely Rachel Baker for guiding us through the process!
AND dates for your diary – 7th September we’ll be having a big chutney making day! (Chutney-geddon? Preseverathon? Chutfest? snappy name suggestions welcomed).  We’ll be accepting donations of any and all excess produce from veg growers on our site and anywhere – apples, damsons, plums, courgettes, runner beans etc and then spending the day chopping, chin-wagging and cooking down at the kitchen at the community center in St Werburghs.. Anyone who knows a thing or two about chutneys is very welcome as is anyone who ever wanted to learn.  You can mooch along for an hour or stay all day.  We’ll be selling the results on….
14th September at our Harvest Fair.  Expect all the loveliness of one of our community events now combined with the Horfield and District Allotment Association Summer Show so we’ll have with a competition of best vegetable basket, best scarecrow etc as well as music, cake, facepainting, kids activities and now including 100% more pizzas!
The Golden Summer of FUN activity days start next Tuesday and we’ve still got spaces so please let everyone with 7-14 year olds who might be bored/glued to X-box this summer know about it. Me, Claire and Nikki have amassed a war chest of games, crafts, nature fun and general outdoor ace-ness.. I can hardly wait!
See you in the garden,
