Castle Park

We began work on rearranging the garden in Castle Park this week.
Weeds were removed, strawberries rejigged to create edges and lots of broad beans were sown as green manure to feed and replenish the soil.
Next, we’ll introduce lots of long-lasting fruit bushes and shrubs along with underplantings of herbs!

Definitely watch this space!!

The peas!

These peas were sown in September as autumn sown peas ready for an early crop in 2023.

With the ongoing warmth, they’ve not just started flowering but are also putting on pods.

We’re yet to see if the pods swell before the weather gets cold.

A gentle reminder that whilst gardening and food growing is what we do, it’s 100% as a response to the climate crisis and that as we head into the mid-2020s, the crisis is, quite literally, heating up.
