The good thing about the rain was that as it forced us into the garden shed at times, we figured we may as well tidy it up while we were sheltering in there!
There is now a little more room to breathe, but we could really do with a new set of shelves to replace the cupboard on the left. If anyone has some that they're throwing away or selling cheap that might work, please let us know.
Notice the scales and book on top of the cupboard on the left? They're for weighing and recording our harvests so that we can add the data to the Farming Concrete website.
It poured with rain at out last working bee, unfortunate for us but great for the plants. Thank you to the couple of people who braved the weather and stopped by! We spent some time tidying up the tomatoes by removing dead leaves and any fruit damaged by insects. There is a lot of fruit that is nearly ripe, so we're hoping for a big harvest soon!
The sweet potatoes (on the left, below) that we planted a couple of weeks ago have taken off. Aren't the heart shaped leaves beautiful? On the right in this garden bed we have potatoes, spring onions and asparagus, and they all seem to get on very well.
We harvested cucumbers, zucchinis and a few tomatoes. There are also more herbs and other greens than we know what to do with, so please come along, say hi, and grab some!
