  • Lots of seasonal veg growing jobs to do on Sunday

    Posted on June 4th, 2011 charlotte No comments

    Our growing team are going to be busy this weekend on our community veg plot at St Kew Highway.

    Expert growers Mark N and Bridget, along with Bob and five-year-old Max, planted out hundreds of pumpkins and squashes in hot Cornish sunshine on Friday.

    The high temperatures in Cornwall mean we have to keep a close eye on the polytunnel and cold frames. We must keep watering the baby beetroot, carrots, leek seedlings, french beans, cucumbers and basil in the tunnel, along with the seedlings in the cold frames, and the brussel sprouts and kale outside.

    Our Sunday volunteers also need to: –

    • Plant out spring onions, purple sprouting broccoli (Rudolph) and dahlias
    • Feed the calabrese and stonehead cabbage seedlings and move them into the cold frames
    • Weed the broad beans, parsley and celeriac
    • Compost the next root bed
    • Cut the grass 

    Phew!
