There’s also fruit on the community trees: late season plums, maincrop apples and pears.


This month we have green manure seeds – phacella, Hungarian rye and winter tares. Sow them now and dig the plants in next spring, to give your plot a good over-winter feed.


This month we have kale plants and winter salads.
