Don’t forget our
Midsummer Supper on Wednesday, 20th June

Come any time from 6pm when there will be allotment nibbles to keep hunger at bay. The main event will start at 6.30 pm. We want to eat outside so, if rain threatens, we’ll put up a gazebo, but come dressed for any weather. Bring a dish to share, perhaps something to drink (though there will be elderflower sparkle) and crossed fingers for a warm, sunny evening with a gentle breeze.


Plants and seeds available

As usual, there are plants available from the poylytunnel; courgettes, summer and winter squash, salads, parsley, basil and summer savory. Or, for winter eating, there are brassica of all kinds; red and Savoy cabbage, several different kinds of kale and purple sprouting broccoli. Brassicas need to be protected from pigeons which seem to like nothing better than a newly planted bed of cabbages. There’s netting and sticks available, so just ask whoever is on duty.
It’s not too late to sow many different kinds of seed. Try climbing French beans as a change from runners, fennel or even a row of swede.


Bees

Finally, you might be interested in a public meeting that asks:
Why is the bee declining?  What are the consequences?  What can we and the
Government do?
“The Bee-Cause”, the Norfolk launch of the Friends of the Earth Campaign to protect the bee
Venue: Assembly House, Theatre Street, Norwich.
Date: Wednesday 27 June Time:  7.30pm (doors open 6.30pm)
