Monday was a wet day, but the kettle didn’t seem to mind!

Even though it’s November, we’ve got leeks, beetroot, chives, cabbages, sprouts, winter radish, chard, rocket, mizuna, purple sprouting all on the go – the tender ones are covered with old double glazing units – purfick. Also planted up this week broad beans, garlic and over wintering onion sets.

Bryan getting stuck into the compost. Some was ready so it went straight on the beds with the cabbages in.

What had sweetcorn in during the summer has now been given a layer of leaves held in place with cardboard – a winter food blanket.

We’ve sent letters to all residents in the village saying we’ll compost their garden waste – got to be better than landfill! This the start of the bays. We’ve also got a leaf mould bin behind the shed and we’re making log piles for wildlife (and the fire).

Our recycled shed complete with recycled water butt!

Events and volunteer days 

Sunday 2nd December –  we will be having a volunteer work day (maybe even a bbq!)  up at Selsley. All welcome. If you come by car you can park at Sainsbury’s and walk up the hill – we’re on the corner as the road turns a sharp left, opposite Pooles Lane. 

December 8th – We’ve got the Transition Stroud WinterFest on at the subrooms. We’ll have plants, pots, plant labels and most importantly, we’ll be selling our local food yey!
