Too wet for volunteers today! We have still been out in the rain constructing a tunnel for our ‘Champion of England’ climbing peas to climb up. The children will enjoy picking fresh peas as they walk through the tunnel of green!

We have also sowed mustard as a quick-growing green manure over many of the veg beds. This will reduce weed growth as the soil warms up. When we come to plant vegetables into the beds, we will incorporate the mustard plants into the soil, increasing the organic matter in the soil.
