Hello Hello!

This is a shout out to anyone who's heard of the Allotment society but wants to know more. We meet each sunday from 2-4 at Trevs reception. Anyone can come along, so if you fancy a bit of getting down and dirty knee deep in veg, then pop along.

We have a couple of phots of our first social, a cream tea affair with homemade bread scones and amazing muffins and we were pleased to see loads of you come along. Theres also gonna be something in the Durham Bubble online magazine about our society so keep an eye on the food section in that.

Last week, a surprising number of you braved the rain to come along and thanks to Ed we had something to plant. This was Winter rye grass and winter field bean, these are both used as a green manure and ground cover plant over the winter. We have experimented with a couple of planting techniques, including alternate rows and a scatter mix (we were getting a bit cold and wet by the time we got to the last bed.)
This week we'll be seeing what, if anything, has germinated.

Another social will be coming soon, so keep an eye on the e-mails.
Stash is also on its way so make sure you place your order now.

See y'all soon
