So far a busy week, making the most of the good weather. On Monday we did more digging on the potato bed and clearing on rhubarb bed, planting our first two rows of first early arran potatoes and admiring the wonderful growth in the greenhouse!
On Tuesday we picked up a load of bricks from my daughters' back yard.
Wednesday: more digging in potato bed, preparing it for second earlies spuds. We boiled an egg on the camp stove, and added it to our salad along with some of our own chives #eatingfromthe plot.
After sustenance we planted the rest of the first early spuds, continued with digging and clearing and Rachel used the bricks to create a cold frame, to warm the ground so we can hopefully get some of the beans planted outside a bit earlier.
Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light. We are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are starting this adventure in January 2021 in the middle of a national Lockdown. Until things change and begin to open up we are abiding by all the Covid-19 Government guidance and for the foreseeable future only Rachel and Anne will be working, in a socially distanced way, to prepare and maintain Plot 33 for when we can invite the community to work with us.
