Ready for harvest we have cabbages, broad beans, peas, blackcurrants and herbs with courgettes, squash, onions, sweet corn and potatoes ready soon, it's productive in the garden and some ready for swaps at the Summer Fayre. Any solution to the many little black flies on the squash they seem to be doing little harm so shall we leave them in peace?

Sunday 18h July

Just Eddie in the garden for the first hour today but we had a relaxed and potentially productive time, planted three rows of spinach with plenty more seeds for another three rows next month and planted two rows of parsnips in the harvested end of the broad bean bed . Watered the celery and celeriac and then Jude joined us when we were tucking into fig rolls and tea. Harvested some herbs and lettuce and admired the emerging raspberries, one alsmost ready but only two strawbwerries this week. Next week we shall be at the Summer Fayre in the market place with some of our produce.

Harvest and planning

We picked some of the produce and then Noel got all creative!

Then we sat down drank some juice and thought about a planting plan, which Noel has kindly tidied up
into a display format. This plan is available from the right side bar for reference when this page disappears into the archive

Music in the Garden 4th July

The wind was wild but the sun was bright!.
The day proved to be every bit as enjoyable as we'd hoped.
We picked ,cleaned,cooked and consumed our lovely crop of new potatoes, we plucked fresh salad leaves and  sweet young pods of peas and broad beans, we steamed the rampant cauliflower and red cabbage, we had a lovely time!

We listened to some fabulous music, that entertained and soothed our souls. Thanks to Martin, Patrick and the fantastic "Swings" duo for their marvellous contribution and a special thanks to Noel for the inspirational toot on his flute! 
Lots of fresh faces to be seen and everyone left with a smile and perhaps some fresh produce! 
Well done everyone for your help and support.

btw  I'm in the process of writing another 16 verses to "Veggies are growing".... something to look forward to, I'm sure you'll agree!
