Garden update

Noel, Janet, Eddie,Alison and Maggie met in the garden on Sunday.
The garlic is growing well and one broad bean has emerged.
They planted half a bed of parsnips and half a bed of beetroot and covered them with fleece to protect from the cold nights, then watered the seeds, broad beans, leeks, garlic, rhubarb and fruit bushes. The water butt is getting low so hopefully we'll be able to get the builders to refill it in the absence of any rainfall!

Last Thursday I met Sarah Pillans and some eco students to help plant the donated apple trees.
They look good in their new home to the east of the raised beds.
There are two bramleys, one ellison orange and two other varieties (sorry should have written them down!)
