I’m back and thawed out from today’s lunchtime harvest at the East Building garden. It’s a bit chilly outside!
We had a bumper harvest of carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, rocket and lettuce, enough to split between seven carrier bags, one for each gardener. Mine is now under my desk, and I can’t wait to take it home and show off a bit. Well, a lot.
I was late, so I missed the wanton destruction of digging up the old plants. Having followed their progress each week since 31st July, that might have been a bit upsetting!
Next up was planting, and we’ve gone for a bed of onions and garlic, one of cabbage, the next of spinach beet and beetroot, and the last of broad beans and radishes. I’m not too sure what spinach beet is, but that’s what it said on the packet. This is an action shot of Justine neatly planting onions in rows. Don’t worry, those are orange gardening gloves, not open flames. Phew.
