Busy time for Camel CSA’s veg growers and pickersPosted on May 31st, 2011 No comments
We’ve been working flat out on our site at St Kew Highway to deal with all the vegetable crops. A solid core of volunteers have been picking, planting, sowing, planting, watering and weeding.
We’ve sown tray after tray of cabbage, sprouting broccoli, Brussels sprouts, calabrese, swede, kale and sweetcorn in modules.
Hundreds of pumpkin and squash plants are bursting out of the cold frames. As soon as more outside beds are prepared we’ll be planting them out too.
We’re also been busy painting the potting shed, glazing the windows, hanging the door and putting the felt on the roof. As soon as we get a calm, windless day we’ll be getting the covers on the second polytunnel and the small seeding tunnel.
Many thanks to expert growers Bridget, Jane and Mark N plus the current regulars - Anne, Bob, Cath, Charlotte, Danny, Henrietta, Jenny, Mark M, Mike S, Penny, Robert, Trish F.
