28 August 2014 - The last day of August

Cutting the tape.
Not some grand opening, just training the tomatoes

Yellow raspberries, ripe & sweet

This was Ryan's last day and Sheila's last day as a volunteer.
A good excuse for a barbecue.

Meanwhile, someone has to keep on weeding

The top bed

Digesting. Cheers.

Back to work creating a new raised bed

hard work but finished in an hour 

ready for some brassica seedlings

safe from the pigeons and slugs.

21 August 2014 - An uncertain day

What should we do?

Compost bin being turned upside down. Good result look out for the worms

Amazing! more potatoes to be pulled out 

Collecting manure for the plot

This is royal mews manure - lot of straw....
A big tomato reddening under the camera

Weed free it would be

No weeds left and lets enjoy the sun while it lasts

The bed after a good dig and weed free

The sky was menacing we rushed to the community room, just in time to avoid the rain.

                              Sorry, we have not introduced our special volunteer student,                    Welcome and Thank you Ryan for your hard work.
                                      Last week some members of the group talked about dominoes, and ...
out they came with coffee and biscuits

A serious business

The winner would get to share ...

Actually the winner, Ryan, left empty ended. 
We shared our harvest with the food bank.
