We bought some wood to make raised beds, so this week we’ve been digging out the strawberry plants and preparing the ground for the new wooden beds. We’re going to replant the strawberries once the beds are filled with soil and compost.
We also dug a trench to fill with manure and compost to grow beans, squash and sweetcorn.
And we had a bonfire!
The Open Orchard group donated 5 fruit trees for our plot and came to help us plant them. The Gardening Group have been helping Open Orchard to plant fruit trees in open spaces around Lambeth.
We now have a plum, quince, pear, eating and cooking apples, as well as the cherry tree we brought with us from the top plot.
