Thursday 20th June 2013 – weeding! creating! watering!

Happy solstice to you!

The group were up on the allotment today even though it threatened rain and was muggy warm for the whole day, we fought off our fears and stayed it out…

Before the weeding….
….after the weeding!
We found some insects… like this spider
Earthed up the potatoes…
… and liberally watered… on arrival and departure…

 We have constructed a raised bed from the ‘heap’ that was at the top of the allotment, photos next week…

Leeks – young plants to fully grown and seeding to the pan!

These leeks were given to the garden group by a very good friend of one the members in August 2012, and planted the same month. They were left to grow over winter, and harvested today to be used for the Rathbone ‘Come Dine With Us’ project which some of the Gardening Project members also attend…

Here’s the process in photo form 🙂

Young leek plants…
…planted in holes on the allotment…
Growing to full size > and begin seeding…
…dug up…

… washed, chopped up and cooked for the plate 🙂

Rock and roll speed

At the start we were copying  Jo and Andrea copying the rainbow dance with stretches as our warm up.

We then started practising our rock and roll dance routine which uses this music:

We are getting faster at our routine and everyone has improved their dance routine.

We finished our lesson with everyone practicing the rainbow dance

I  enjoyed  the rock and roll dance the most this evening.
