End of March Working Party

Lots to do here, lettuces sown in modules to go into the cold frames. Weeding, and of course spreading our piles of Mushroom compost over the ground to get it working for us and growing lots of veg!

It was dry but a bit breezy today, so tea and coffee were very welcome. We even had to erect a temporary windbreak!

A welcome sight - tea and coffee

We also welcomed two new members, Graham and Judith, to the CSA today, with a mug of tea!

Our WWII V-2 rocket crater has been filled over the week with pond dredgings from a neighbour's pond in Rushmere, both filling the hole and adding fertility to our soil.

Today was also the time to recommission the farm veg box stall, overhauling it, making it a lot more sturdy and adding an insulated roof using an airspace and foil to try and fend off the summer noon-time heat to keep the boxes in top condition
