Planting out garlic and dealing with weeds

We got a lot of work done during our Dig Day in the garden on Saturday 2 March. Benn and Sadie weeded one very overgrown bed, which took a lot of time. Benn and Justin then weeded another bed that hasn’t been used much recently near the weeping willow tree.

Justin got on with hoeing the weeds in our beds where we are growing kale and cabbages. And Huseyin did some weeding and also planted more garlic in one of the beds.

We talked about plans to restart a wormery – which gives us lots of good nutrients to add to the beds – and to better organise our compost heaps. We’ll also be sowing some seedlings in pots in our polytunnel soon, so we had a chat about what kind of things we might like to grow over the year.

Our community garden has recently teamed up with the Friends of Ruskin Park, which organises gardening and other activities in other areas of the park. We’ll be in the garden from 10am until around 12.30pm on the first and third Saturday of each month, and there are always plenty of jobs (big and small) to be done.
