Rain please!

As much as I like this fantastic weather we have been having it would be quite useful for us gardeners to have a bit of rain right now,  it has been a very dry month and the most important task during the garden club sessions at the moment is keeping on top of the watering, especially areas we have recently planted. It is a frantic time in terms of planting in vegetables gardens right now and during the garden club session this saturday at Abbey Gardens we will be sowing as much as we can, mainly brassicas and leafy crops. There is also more digging and clearing to do and of course, watering. The garden club will start at 10 am as usual and we will be sowing in the brassica bed from 12 midday.
