Tomatoes, peppers, potatoes and squash in the garden

We’re getting ready for the autumn in Ruskin Park Community Garden. That means a lot of digging over beds and laying down compost, to get ready for planting new crops for overwinter.

So far we’ve planted rows of onions and garlic. And we’re still harvesting veg from the last lot of planting.

Currently we’ve got tomatoes (mainly still green!), peppers and squash still growing to be harvested soon.

We’ve also got potatoes still to harvest, while our cabbages and kale are still going strong. And we have plans to plant some broad beans and peas for overwintering.

Another volunteer is growing cauliflower, rainbow chard and salad leaves.

And another has set about tidying up our herb bed with a view to growing some new herbs in the future.

We’ll be open for all volunteers on Sunday 30 September, from 1-3pm. That’s the day of the Ruskin Park Community Harvest day in the park, so there will be lots for people to do on the day.

All our volunteers – and new people – are welcome to pop in and see how we’re doing in the garden. We are always open to new volunteers getting involved, and we’d love to hear some of your ideas for what else we can plant in the coming year too.
