    Update from the Community Gardens September 2019

    Update     

    September is always a time to gather in the crops and this year we’ve had the most wonderful produce to harvest. The runner beans are finally coming to an end and the courgettes have been roasted, boiled, whizzed up into soup and even chutney there have been so many.

       

    This is the first year we’ve grown tomatoes in the poly tunnel and greenhouse which have been amazing and are still cropping and we’ve just begun bringing in the first of the squash with yet more apples! It has been wonderful for the volunteers to take their bounteous share of produce home to enjoy and fill their freezers for winter, but even better is that we’ve been able to give lots to the local homeless day centre and food bank.

       

    Tuesday afternoons at Oaklands Park Community Garden will stop for the year at the end of September 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.
