Sunday May 30th

Thank you to Nick and Sarah we now have squash, sweet corn and courgettes! Nick will you let us know the varieties planted for our records? Eddie's hacked nettles were added as mulch, full of nitrogen for the worms to work on.
One more bed was nearly completed with cardboard as a base and a very creative method for keeping the rabbits away using salvaged materials from the grounds. Well it might shock them by its temporary nature if they try to jump over.
Janet thinned the lettuce and after tasting on the plot we all took bags home for ourselves and neighbours. Open as usual next week 2.00 to 4.00, see you there!
