Allotment Weekly – w/c 10 June

There are lots of good things to tell you about this week. We entered a pallet garden into Gardening Scotland at the end of May, and the children got a Gold Award for their efforts. The theme decided upon by Pre-school was a ‘Night and Day’ garden.

This worked very well as can be seen in the photo. We have now put a variation of the garden outside the nursery. On the allotment, we are harvesting peas, strawberries, lettuce, spinach, radishes, rhubarb and broad beans – they all taste so good.

The more tender crops such as pumpkins and sweet corn are now growing outside, and the poly tunnel is like a jungle!
