I was damp and sluggish (full of slugs!) on the monthly volunteer-lunch Wednesday. The rain and being enthusiastically watered by my keen gardeners, has left me feeling soggy.
I was still able to provide a hearty harvest for the monthly garden lunch, including: a myriad of salad leaves, tomatoes, purple tomatillos, beetroot, beans and spring onions.
Some of my less successful courgette plants were added to the compost and winter salads were planted in their place. The soil level in these containers was raised slightly in an effort to allow greater air-flow around the bases of these new plants.
Seeds were gathered for over winter storage from my vigorous nasturtiums.
And I’m feeling fresh after my compost was given a good digging over.
