Dig Day Sunday 11 June

The harvest from last Sunday's dig day - raspberries, broad beans and asparagus

The harvest from last Sunday’s dig day – raspberries, broad beans and asparagus

There wasn’t a huge turnout on our dig day last Sunday. However, there was lots of harvesting to be done. Our raspberries are now growing strong and there was a whole tubful to harvest. They have continued to grow this week too.

The first of our broad beans are coming through too. And our asparagus continues to grow very fast!

Carrots were planted out in the broad bean bed last week, and some general tidying, weeding and watering was done too.

THERE WILL BE NO DIG THIS SUNDAY. All of our committee members are away. However, we will be in the garden again on SATURDAY 24 JUNE FROM 1PM.

This is because that’s the day of the Ruskin Park Summer Fete and so the park should be busier than usual. We hope to open up our garden and also to have a stall at the Fete to advertise the community garden.

If any volunteers are around on the afternoon of the 24th, and want to volunteer to help out for an hour or two, please get in touch by emailing info@ruskinparkcommunitygarden.org and let us know what times  you are free. We will try and organise a rota so that we have enough people throughout the day.

Even if you haven’t been up to doing much gardening, sitting on a stall for an hour and helping give our leaflets about the garden will still be a huge help.
