This month....

At harvest time, it is easy to forget how many other activities go in to a good growing season, and an enjoyable gardening experience. We have made notes of each session since the beginning of 2017 to inform our growing activity and remind ourselves of some of the non-growing highlights. Here are a few snippets from our records of three Septembers.
2017: spreading woodchip on the paths; first delivery of leaves from the Parks Department (27th September); spreading ferret bedding in the greenhouse and tunnels to deter rodents (it worked on volunteers as well).
2018: Tomato tastings (seven varieties); visit from a toad; packeting seeds; spreading MOT stone; bean frame destroyed by wind; kingfisher seen on the river; harvested outdoor tomatoes ahead of a forecast frost.
2019: Sharing edible flowers; three external talks delivered in a week (U3A, Tangent, Trefoil Guild);turned the compost bays; moved water around to keep all the butts full (rainfall 30% higher than 2018 for year to date); held a seed workshop.
‚ÄčAnd 2020 is different again!
