A lot of tea and a bit of work….

This happy crowd are our first offical group visitors, Some members of  SEEOG   (South East Essex Organic Gardeners). They have been great supporters, with help, advice and donations. We had the flags out for the occasion, and tea…lots of tea.

The visitors got a guided tour of the plot, they were most impressed by the vertical gardening up and over the shed.Some concerns were expressed about the roof under the weight of our impressive pumpkin!

We then had a discussion about suggestions for winter planting, over a cup of tea, and then it was time for lunch….

Vic and Ducan then tackled the sadly blighted tomatoes in the greenhouse. It was an experiment, since they couldnt get the daily TLC they really need. Recipes for green tomato chutney were swapped.

We are excited and hopeful about the melons

The others set to weeding some of the beds, and digging up more potatoes, we really have had a good harvest.

And then, all to soon it was time to leave. Thank you, everyone, for coming. Thanks to Sharon for donating a pile of books and some seeds, and to Vic for a tray of seedlings ( and for planting them!) We hope to see you again soon and to welcome many more visitors to the plot.

  1. Hi Fiona,

    And thanks so much for inviting us – you have a lovely spot there and I hope it continues to go well for you all. Your pics should be on our website in due course.

    Is there any news of the baby yet?

    Best wishes.

    Carole
