Sunday the 11th of January saw the ringing in of a new gardening year with the first Communal Crew day down at the WBCG.
Due to the great response to the weed emergency of last week, there wasn't a huge list of things to do, but as any gardener knows, once you're in the garden, suddenly more little jobs and adjustments become apparent.
Cup-a-tea time was shared by a discussion about rust and a phantom tomato-wilting disease that exists in the soil. Libby diligently passed around samples of rust-effected marigolds (to be disposed off off site now) and a wasted tomato plant.
We also welcomed a new comer to the garden, Jessie, who turned up just in time for cake and tomato planting.
The next communal crew day is on the 15th of February, if you feel like coming down.
