And the rest of the week’s news ..

pickled green tomatoesIt will soon be Go Local Food’s pickling week when we clear the green tomatoes and provide the onions to go with them for you.

You have to produce the jam jars and bottles for yourselves as well as doing the work mind. Best to start looking for those jars then as at this time of year a lot of preserving is done and there is competition for stores of  suitable jars and lids.

And think of the patient work that will soon be required to plant out 600 strawberry runners in the bales of hay that have been provided courtesy of Temperley Grange. That’s the number of plants required to replace the one five year old bed that is being taken out.

The black bio degradable cornstarch has proved its worth this season and another 1000 metre roll is required to be ordered for further planting out.
