Sunday 15th August

No more bare soil!
We planted spinach, Italian (Bianca Piatta) and French (Navette de Nancy Feuille Entiere) turnips, bulb fennel, rocket, beetroot, baby leeks and Mizuna. How amazing is that to be planting seeds in the warm sun starting the third week in August!
We harvested onions, courgettes and beetroot and just one early squash.
Anyone who is waiting for an allotment or curious come and plant, harvest or just chat it is open to everbody in or near Louth.
Having said that we are not there next Sunday but shall be the following week at two, check the blog to see changes to open times.

Sunday 8th August

After a short debate, as to whether it was
ready to be harvested or not, we plucked our first squash!.

We stripped the pea plants and saved the dried pods for next years seed. Then we transplanted the leeks into another bed and harvested most of our lovely onion crop, which we stored in the shed ready for our October soup fest!

Why not pop along next Sunday and see how the garden has progressed? It'll be lovely to see you.
