Pub lunch

A huge thank you to Dame Alice Pub and the HEINEKEN team at Neighbourly for sponsoring a wondering 3 course pub lunch with drinks. This was in celebration of our three garden awards and Men’s Shed garden award received this summer. 

 

What’s growing

Although the temperatures have now reached minus numbers, our garden is still not fully asleep for winter. We have many perennials herbs on display and a prolific Cup and Saucer Vine (Cobaea scandens) which is still flowering on our pergola. Last week we harvested the last of our basil and have replaced these with a selection of winter salad leaves including Winter Purslane, Chinese Mustard, Land Cress, Mizuna, and Wild Rocket. Our onions, garlic, peas and broad beans have all appeared and will grow over winter, giving us an earlier crop in spring/summer. Still lots of chilies on the plants, we continue to string these and hang them to dry in the greenhouse.
