We have had a pretty productive year in the Community Allotment – our first figs ( thanks to the incredibly warm weather methinks in June and July ) and a new venture growing borlotti beans, sorry no photos of them, but they were picked and shared! Each year we do try out new plantings and last year we planted 2 vines which are now starting to establish themselves in one of the greenhouses – so watch this space for the future … You may wonder what the photo of the brickwork is about – if you look very closely you may be able to see the flock of ladybirds which were above our shed door recently… and we do also grow flowers and so were glad to collect just a few of the hundreds of plants left over at the end of the RHS flower show this year- hence the other photo !
We are a Community Allotment open for you to join us any Sunday 10am – 12pm, Monday 2 – 4pm or Wednesday 10am – 12pm ( except when totally pouring ! ) You don’t have to commit to every week, just come along when you can and introduce yourself to whoever is on duty and we will be glad to see you.
