After a lot of hard work from the Neighbourhood Group and the Weekend Resource, the rear garden has been producing some wonderful food.
So far the groups have used courgettes, cucumbers, lettuce, onions, peas and rhubarb. The carrots, tomatoes and potatoes should be next on the dinner plates with broad beans still growing well. The final crop will be sweetcorn; the cobs are growing well, but with the best of the summer behind us, the race to get them ripened is on!
The side garden has also yielded some soft fruit; redcurrants and gooseberries with blueberries still ripening on the bush. It’s been a great first year for the new garden… we look forward to next year!
