This Sunday, 7th July… what to do!
Watering in this hot dry weather
Courgettes – once they start to crop, pick regularly to stimulate the plants to produce more. And if you are going away for a few days, ask a neighbouring plot holder to pick them!
Mulch – around perennial plants, e.g. fruit trees and fruit bushes. Potatoes benefit too from having cut grass and nettles laid around the plants to conserve moisture
Weeding around the greenhouses is always useful, and on Sunday it would be great if someone could help me sort out compost.
Shock as hole discovered near greenhouse!
|And finally, the first Sunday of the month is, as always, a food sharing day. We’ll assemble at 1.00 to share dishes and allotment gossip. You don’t have to be a Nigella or even a Delia. You do have to be willing to show others what you have grown, and how you use it.|
