Late autumn

We have tidied up the beds in the Gatherums, reduced the amount of marigolds that have been so spectacular over the summer and transplanted spring cabbage (thanks Nick!) and hardy lettuce (this variety survived last years severe frosts so we're hoping they'll do well)
We also transferred some of the alpine strawberry to the Church St plots also planting garlic cloves.I rigged up a small sign to encourage local residents to contact me if they'd like some help to grow their own vegetables. The owner of the site is quite happy with what's happening so watch this space there may be some more beds very soon!
