Hello Peter

Fantastic! You are much further down the horticultural path than I. Last year was my first growing year - I still have some Broccoli still, very slowly, growing. My spinach was a virtual failure, so I will try some cloches too! Incredible Edible Somerset has been brilliant already!!

Btw, I have spare runner bean, sunflower, rocket and pak choi seeds. Do you fancy swapping for something?

Here come the lighter evenings. The buds are just starting!

cheers for now

Hi Stuart

Thanks for getting in touch.

Going to try some early lettuces and spinach under cloches. The polythene tubes that carpets come in are a handy size if cut in half length-wise and I managed to get some from Living homes. The hoops will be made from thin willow wands that have been left out in the open for long enough that they won't grow into willow trees!

Looking forward to lighter evenings and warmer temperatures.

See you

Peter

Hi Stuart, you must be through with Santa now? Wishing you a great year in 2012 and hope you can help us spread the word about Incredible Edible Somerset? I don't think we have anyone coming from Street yet - do you know if there is much demand for new land to grow food on? Or do you know of Street based local food projects? Be great to get your local knowledge on this! See you soon I hope! Linda
