    Update from the Community Gardens October 2019

                      Sowing onion sets at the Bishop’s Palace Vegetable Garden

    Update     

    October has been very wet, it has rained and rained but it hasn’t stopped us and our wonderful team of volunteers turning out in force for our gardening sessions. The harvests may be lessening but the leaves are turning and there are some wonderful autumnal colours in the gardens. The garlic and onion sets have been planted and the cabbages are nearly ready albeit for some slight slug and pigeon damage!

      

    The volunteers have worked so hard turning and sieving the past years compost and is now ready to top up the raised beds with some much needed goodness. The tomatoes have been removed to make way for a quick salad crop in the greenhouse and poly tunnel and one of our wonderful volunteers has been making chutney with the left over green tomatoes that refused to ripen!

      

    Tuesday afternoons at Oaklands Park Community Garden have now stopped for the year but Wednesday and Saturday morning sessions in the Bishop’s Palace Vegetable Garden continue throughout the year, so do come along as we’d love to see you.
