Sunday volunteers 22 April

Well we had a good turnout of people and a very productive pleasant Autumn day today. The broad beans and peas we planted last week are bursting through. We completed the planting out of seeds in the plots that were cleaned up last week. This included more dwarf peas interplanted with radishes, silver beet, carrots and lettuce.

Jed has been working on the potato patch. The leaf fall is starting to build up.

We constructed another metal raised quick pick garden for the carpark area. This will be filled with soil and compost over the next week ready hopefully to be planted out next weekend. Annie and Franklin spent some time cutting hose for the edges and we reinforced them all a little more. The existing plants are growing well and this is turning into a very productive area. Despite being fairly exposed to the elements it is very sunny and the seeds and seedlings seem to like the raised warm space.

Thanks again to all who turned up and helped out. 🙂
