19th January

Adding this a week later on the 26th, a much milder day (though there’s still a nip in the air) and with nine of us, we got a lot tackled.

Last week fewer of us turned out but we got some jobs done, even if it was bitterly cold, as can be seen in the photo of a repaired and repainted tyre for one of the wheelbarrows

November 10th

After good crops of fruit and veg, we are now into November and still taking home produce –

this week spring onions, lettuce, peppers, carrots, brussels sprouts, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach, chard, leeks and parsnips.

We normally grow shorter varieties of carrots. The one pictured here has really swelled out.

Thunder and rain

Well, thunder and torrential rain were forecast. Rain is so needed and what did we have?Two brief, light showers…

There were only five of us but we got quite a lot done and a lot harvested.

It was great to see bees pollinating, especially as I’ve seen so few this year. Wasps, too many!

Harvest time

We’re pleased with our yields of onions (red and white), shallots and garlic and yesterday we divided them into 13 shares.

Together with the harvesting of other produce, we definitely needed wheelbarrows to convey all the goodies.
