Saturday volunteers 29th August

With the warm sunny weather continuing in the Mid Mountains, Spring is already here!

Volunteers began with removing the existing protection netting structure over garden bed 1 as it was realised that it would not allow the rapidly growing broad bean crop to reach its full height. New, taller hoops were installed in their place.

Anchor posts were were driven in at the ends of the bed and new, wider bird protection netting was installed over the hoops.

What a great job done by the volunteers!

This will allow sufficient height for a crop support trellis to be installed to support the rapidly growing bean crop that is now flowering profusely.

With the dry weather continuing, crops needed to be watered.
