Lovely crisp sunny morning. On my way to open the allotment and light the rocket stove, why not come and join us today?
During the winter we are opening earlier at 11am and closing at 4.30. It gets so cold and dark at the end of the day! We are also occasionally working on a Sunday for people who are busy during the week. If we are going to be there on a Sunday I will post the time on our Facebook page ‘Easton Community Allotment’ early on the Sunday morning as it will be weather dependent. Thursday’s still go ahead rain or shine.
East Side Roots are having to downsize and we have been the happy recipients of a beautiful early fruiting cherry tree. It has been growing in a large barrel and is now waiting in a tub till we are ready to plant it in the woodland area at Commallot. We were also given lots of Thyme plants which we put into the herb garden last Sunday.
Most of our work currently is repairing bed edges, maintaining paths and mulching beds for winter with cardboard. Soon we will plant a new bed of Autumn Raspberries and broad beans for the Spring crop. So although it is almost winter there is still lot’s to do so do come and join us if you have time.
