Food-sharing April 2013

This Sunday, 7th April

Opening times

Now that the days are getting longer, the Big Shed will be open from 10am on Sundays, closing at 2pm.

Wednesday opening times will stay the same, from 10am until 1pm.


Food sharing lunch

It’s hard to believe given the rest of the month, but the March food sharing lunch was eaten outside, in the sun! Let’s hope that this Sunday, the first in April, will be as kind. Come along at 1pm with a dish made from seasonal produce to share.


A taste of what is to come…

The lettuce, mibuna and mizuna seedlings in the greenhouse are doing well and should ready for planting out in a couple of weeks. Late summer purple sprouting broccoli, calabrese and more salad crops will follow.

For what can be sown the moment to soil warms up, look at the April grower guide on the website, or on the notice board in the Big Shed.


…and help needed

Pricking out lettuce seedlings from a seed tray into individual modules is a slow but pleasant task, almost a meditation.

If anyone has an hour to spare on Sunday morning for that or a similar task, come to the Big Shed where Jane G, Juyna or I will be on duty.
