Whats growing ….

Nina and Karen came round and we had a look on site. In general the seeds did not take well and the grass and wild flower seeds are struggling to come up. The north eastern side of the site is very barren and the top soil is compacted and rock solid. It looks like no attention had been paid to the fact that the seeds need to be raked into the ground. A real pity and waste of seeds.



Having said that – some plants are popping up. Karen’s informed eye spotted lots of vegetables. Especially a complete colony of tomato plants – growing nicely in the corner of the site.
