Last summer’s Red Admiral on a Raspberry bush

If you have spare rhubarb, raspberry, redcurrant or blackcurrant plants to share, let us know at seeds@grow-our-own.co.uk or put a notice on the seed and plant notice board, as it’s the time of year to plant/transplant them.

Jobs for December

calendar
Plant raspberry, gooseberry black and red current bushes.

Prune and feed existing plants, if you are not sure how to do this, watch this website for pruning workshops in the new year.

Dig over uncultivated ground and add any organic matter available, cover with polythene or cardboard, well weighted down so it doesn’t get blown away.

Food Share Sunday

The next Food Share is on Sunday 7th December at 1pm in the big shed.
You may like to wrap up!
We are organising a mini raffle for our Festive Gathering on Saturday 20th December and we are looking for donations of small gifts. Could you please bring any items to the lunch on the 7th? Many thanks.
There’s also a large cardboard box in the shed marked ‘donations’ if you are not able to make the lunchtime gathering.
I am not able to be there this time but most of the Food Team will be there to welcome you on the 7th. Hope you all have a good meal.

Weeds or wildflowers?

A friend and fellow-gardener in South London sent me this info about weeds on the plot – a useful indicator of the health of the soil:

  • Nettles are a good indicator of soil rich in phosphates;
  • Chickweed is the primary nitrogen indicator;
  • Lots of clover and hop-trefoil indicates dry, hungry alkaline soil;
  • Creeping buttercup – poor drainage;
  • Young nettles make a mean lasagne;
  • Fat hen is under-rated as an edible weed and is better than spinach!
  • Weeds with deep roots (eg bindweed, ground elder) should be used. They bring up nutrients from far down – soak to extract (until it smells) and then dilute to the colour of weak tea and use;
  • Marestail is rich in silica and when applied (soak etc as above) to living tissue it discourages fungal spores and that’s why it’s used by biodynamic growers to discourage potato blight (needs to be sprayed every 10 days or so to keep the protective silica layer intact).
Best regards
Jane C.

Apologies

This week’s newsletter is a bit plain I am afraid – I’ve been having difficulties with GO2’s internet service provider, so you may not be able to “see” our website from time to time. Other links I have included were working at the time.
(Note also that opinions expressed here are personal – particularly regarding the taste of Fat Hen or nettles!)

Jim

Newsflash

We seem to have run out of garlic for planting, if anyone has unknowingly planted whole bulbs of garlic instead of separating the individual cloves, could they please bring back any cloves they don’t require.garlic_5

I will put a list for people to sign if they have missed out on supplies and we will get some more for spring planting.

It is not too late to get broad beans planted, or if you have already planted some earlier, another sowing now will bring a second crop in the early summer.

There are also winter lettuce plants ready for planting that will bring you early lettuces in the spring.

Stir-up Sunday Approaches

Why not try making Eliza Acton’s Christmas pudding from 1845 Eliza-Acton-Christmas-pudding 

Traditionally you should make this on Stir-Up Sunday, the last Sunday in November

Tool and Shed Day

A big thank you to everyone who volunteered.
It was really useful as we found that most of the tools were in good order and all accounted for on the inventory.
The shears and clippers were sharpened and the sheds cleaned.
There are enough hand tools to last through the winter.
We will arrange another Tool and Shed Day before the next growing season in 2015.

First Sunday Food Share

Over thirty of us squeezed into the Centre (Big Shed) to avoid being soaked with rain at lunchtime last Sunday.
It was the first indoor meal after a long Summer of al fresco food. New faces and old enjoyed meeting and eating a very pumpkin-rich assortment of delicious dishes.
If you have any photos or recipes from last Sunday, send them to newsletter@grow-our-own.co.uk

Time for a Tidy

The End-of-Year Tools Clear Up is this Sunday (2nd November), a chance to “put something back” in every sense! Note that refreshments will be served mid morning.

Food Share

Food Share? What’s that I hear you say? Well, it is a traditional part of this scheme that on the first Sunday of the month we gather together to share food. Please join us if you are new (or even existing member) of this wonderful scheme by bringing some food/drink to share. The idea is to use produce from your plots as much as possible. I’m hoping to bake a pear/apple crumble & a pumpkin dish.

SAM_9730

I rescued some beans pods from the compost heap recently & have used the beans inside. I steamed them & then used them for a stew. Have also frozen some! If you have too many beans or any other produce/plants on your plot/s then please put them on the wooden picnic table for others to help themselves.

 Rubbish to dump

Charles & I have been taking the non-recyclable rubbish to the tip for some time now & we plan to do it again next week. If you have any unwanted plastic or any other non-recyclable rubbish then please leave near the greenhouse under the table as pictured. If you are able to take it home & put it in your domestic rubbish bin then please do.

Thanks, Juyna

Welcome

GO2 has had an influx of new members, so welcome to: Frank, Jaime and Andres who join our other Spanish growers, Beki, Vic, Raphael, Jana, Sophie, Anita, Michael, Joanne and Mark. We’re pleased that Anne M, Laurie and Max have all come back to GO2 after a break.

If you have new people next to you, please say hello and make them welcome. If you ever want to know who your plot neighbours are, there is a diagram in the big shed.

We have a potential new grower: congratulations to Amaranta and José who have had a little boy, Dario (hope I spelt that right). The little wheelbarrow is waiting until he’s big enough!

We still have vacant plots so if you know of anyone who might be interested, do bring them along. You could even share or print and display this poster.Bluebell-members-wanted_page_001

A reminder: from mid-November to mid-February, there is officially no one in the big shed on Sunday and Wednesday mornings, though it’s quite likely some of us will be there – with tea and cake. We just can’t keep away – even in bad weather!

Thanks, Christine

Seasonal Soup

Bridget has sent us a season recipe for Ginger and Chilli Pumpkin Soup, her kitchen will be full at her chutney-workshop tomorrow, Saturday. Jamie-Olivers-pumpkin-soup

GO2 10th Anniversary and Open Day

was on Saturday 27th September 2014

I would like to thank to all our team leaders and members for the excellent organisation of the event. Personally, it was one of the great days in my life – to see a small, pilot scheme called GO2 develop into a mature, self-sustaining organisation. The organisation of the event also reflected the cooperative ethos of GO2. We all should be proud of our achievements and encourage others to join in. Thank you once again for all your hard work.
Happy gardening,

Mahesh

Many thanks to the Food Team and all who helped in the planning and preparation, provided food and produce for sale or who just joined in.

Thanks also to the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Councillor Judith Lubbock who visited. The Mayor spoke congratulating Mahesh and Grow Our Own for our ten-year-old community initiative, then she cut one of the three birthday cakes, seen here.

On your plot this month:

October

image001

There’s still plenty of produce to pick before the weather turns cold.

Harvest:

Vegetables: calabrese (broccoli), Chinese and summer cabbage, kohl-rabi; roots – beetroot, carrots, Florence fennel, parsnip, radish, swede, turnip; squash family: pumpkins, squashes (last chance before the frosts!); green leaves – spinach, oriental and regular salad leaves; chilli peppers; leeks. (Wait till the frosts before picking your kale.)

Fruit: autumn fruiting raspberries. There’s also fruit on the community trees: apples and pears.

Seeds: This month we have white onion sets (red onion sets in spring, as they aren’t winter hardy) and garlic. There’s just time to sow spinach. Mid-month we’ll have broad beans, but not before – we don’t want them to grow too vigorously and then get flattened by frost.

Plants: This month we have a few kale plants (it’s getting late to plant those out) and some winter salads.

Next month: In November we’ll have broad beans for late autumn sowing.

The Seeds and Plants Team

On Saturday it is our Open Day

go2needsyou

We will be serving food to the public.

To help people with food allergies it is best to label food with the ingredients used.

So we don’t lose anything, we should put our names on containers and other equipment which we bring to the event.

keep-calm-and-grow-our-own

Look more professional – wear an apron when serving food.

It would help if you could bring a flask of hot water – we’ll need it for making drinks and washing mugs.


New Recipes

Bridget has provided two more chutney recipes for the preserves recipes page, which has been updated.

Bridget says,

“The tomatillo one seems, on first tasting, to be rather good.  Hope to have another workshop, making pumpkin chutney + something else, later in October.”

GO2 Tenth Anniversary and Open Day

GO2-Bluebell-Open-Day-2014-small
This is a fantastic occasion and not one to be missed – GO2 is 10 years old and going strong. We are celebrating this amazing project started by the indefatigable Mahesh so it would be great to see as many growers – past, present and future – as possible! We have advertised the open day widely but please tell your friends and neighbours they would be most welcome.

The Food team is arranging refreshments and we can be sure that there will be lots of lovely things to eat (contributions welcome no doubt). They are also setting up a produce stall so if you were given a temporary plot until October, now is the time to let us have some of the produce to sell, as was the deal, or provide something else to sell!

So far, the programme for the day is:

10 am – 12 pm: setting up
12 – 4 pm: open to visitors, renewals for 2014/2015 (so bring your money if you haven’t already paid)
1.30: arrival of the Lord Mayor (who may come on a bicycle and may be in full chains or not!)
4 pm: on with the Kelly Kettle for a restorative cuppa while clearing up!

If anyone could help set up, clear up, show visitors round, etc please let me know pronto – or turn up on the day!

Open Day is only 3 weeks away, so please have a look in your book shelves and cupboards for any cookery books and items you no longer need. We’re hoping to have a fundraising sale on the big day – Sat 27th September, 12 – 4. The Lord Mayor is coming at 1.30 to cut the birthday cake. We hope to see lots of growers and would appreciate offers of help in showing people round. Could anyone organise a stall to sell produce?

Thanks. Christine, adminatsigngrow-our-own.co.uk

Monster tomatoes.

We’ve been tidying up the tomato plants in the polytunnel. This pic is of a single monster-sized plant. Hoping for a bumper display for Open Day, so we’ll have to resist the temptation to pick the tomatoes before they’re properly ripe! Fingers crossed that the blight holds off…

These bamboo cuttings are not ready to be used. They are too ‘green’ & will need to harden in time for Spring.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY NOW. Thanks.

They took quite some effort to get them into our little car & then onto the allotment; several journeys involved so please share fairly.

This is the time for harvesting – a season of plenty.

Seeds: Fennel, lettuce, Chinese cabbage, oriental salad, kohlrabi, radicchio, radish, spinach, Swiss chard, turnip, kale and green manure.

Herb Walk

For those who missed it the first time, we’re repeating the Herb Walk on Sunday 10th August.

There are at least forty different herbs scattered in communal areas around the GO2 allotments. We’ll take a map of the site and attempt to plot them, discussing their culinary and medicinal uses as we go.

Meet at the big shed at 11am for about an hour’s walk.

Thanks to those who brought all the lovely food to share last Sunday. We had a good turnout on a lovely day. One little point, could you please remember to take your containers home? Many thanks.


Jam Workshop

Jam making at the SLI office in West Earlham recently was great fun & educational. There were 10 people there learning how to jam using plums, greengages & damson. We were lucky enough to take a jar or two to use at home. I, personally, learnt quite a bit about how to use these fruits. By the way, the end result was delicious. Click here for photosJam-kit and
here for the recipe.P1010591


Skills

Any one out there prepared to share their skills in preserving, cooking, cake making? I’m looking to put a data base together of people who would be happy to show/share with others their particular skills. Please let me know if you want further details.

Many thanks.

Juyna, (Food Team)

Jam tomorrow!

Mahesh is making plum jam at the SLl office tomorrow – Saturday, 2nd August, 11am – 2pm at the West Earlham Community Centre (Click here for more info)

 

Bridget is running a chutney-making workshop next Saturday, 9th August, 10am – 1pm
We’ll use plums from the allotment to make chutney to raise funds for GO2.
It may not be too late to take part in either or both of these workshops, so email us asap.

Jars needed

We still need jam jars, with lids, clean and with labels removed, for our jams and chutneys. The 300ml (1lb) size, or thereabouts, is the most useful.
Please leave in the big shed.

Thanks, food@grow-our-own.co.uk

Herbs

Are you interested in the cultivation and uses of herbs?  Join Bridget at 12.00 this Sunday 3rd August, in the picnic area under the apple tree to talk about being part of a group focused on herbs.


First Sunday Food

August is almost here! What happened to July? It went far too quickly. Hope to see as many as possible for shared food lunch this Sunday (3rd Aug) at 1pm.

If you haven’t been before then don’t be shy! Come & say ‘hi’ & meet other plot holders.

The scheme is about connecting with others as well as sharing our knowledge & friendship. You’ll be most welcome. If you are able to then please bring something to share that used vegs/fruits from your plots (plum cake anyone?).

See you on Sunday. Finally, a little favour to ask of everyone; if you are passing the herb sinks nr the toilet block then please pull out any weeds & water the herbs if they look thirsty.

Thanks, Juyna (Food Team)

Training


Janet Johnson, a keen gardener, attended a herb session led by Dano & this is what she said about it:

“Another excellent training session on the allotment. About eight of us were there and we learned how to take cuttings and pot up herbs, including some rarities. The session was very interesting, and enjoyable, sharing Dano’s expertise and knowledge and meeting some growers who were new to me – so very practical and sociable. It was a hands on session I wasn’t really able to take notes! I have a good variety of herbs on my allotment but I learned several new things which I will put into practice. If anyone wants a cutting from my French tarragon plant, just ask …”

 


Janet has mislaid her food container which she describes as a large mottled grey plastic round container, diameter 11 inches or 28 cm, 4 inches deep or 10 cm, with an opaque flexible lid. She points out she used it to bring food to Food Share. She has another container but she can’t bring as much as when she had two!

Please have a look as we’d all like Janet to continue bringing her lovely home-made delicious mouth watering food. Did you take it home to wash or have you put aside somewhere? If so, please let us know. Thanks.

Eddie’s alternative weed-killer idea

image001
Got Weeds? Use Vinegar: Homemade Weed Killer
1 gallon of white vinegar
1/2 cup salt
Liquid dish soap (any brand)
Empty spray bottle
Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day.
Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work.
