July 3rd

A few hours watering, harvesting and light trowelling! Hardly a weed in sight but plenty of veg to collect.
Broad beans, strawberries, garlic, beetroot, spinach ready this week and more of all these plus broccoli next Sunday, from about 11.00 am for a couple of hours, everyone is welcome.
There have been a few problems with one patch, the courgettes disappeared and in the same space Sunflower plants have been eaten. It is last years potato plot, might there be a connection?
Carrot seeds failed to germinate earlier in the season so we have retried, adding a little sand to the bed, James thinks carrots like to be by the sea!

Wednesday 6th at 2 pm we are in The Gatherums for a short time to water and weed, again everyone welcome. The following week we hope to add three deep beds for vegetables and fruit for you to collect on the way through. Look on the blog for the planting day.

17th July in the St james food market Transition Town Louth and teh Community Garden will have a stall with a veg swap, edible flowers and more.
