I hope that many people saw our Growing Gang in the Hexham Courant Environmental Section this week. It also gives a mention to the rest of the Go Local Food group! There’s still time to buy a copy or maybe borrow a copy if you have missed us.
The Growing gang on the 28th July will be working on a cold store project
We are looking for any size clear bottles
Please take to The Palace at the GO Local Food site at Ovington where there will be a collection point!
At least read the article as it quotes the growers who briefly state the problems that the summer has given them. Nice to have facts to explain the situation. Makes you realise how hard it is to buy local or even produced in the UK sometimes.
And it looks as if the weather is not a lot better over the channel in France, our near neighbours either and is causing just as many of the same problems.
On Tuesday Ian picked the first of the ripe tomatoes, he was planning that each member would get 1 in their crop share this week. However when his back was turned 9 disappeared…
This could be a whodunit, a fairy story, a maths problem or a lateral thinking exercise – send us your solution to the mystery – we have a crop share for the winner.
Here’s a little more info to go on… it was hot and sunny – we have a mole problem in some of our tunnels they like the fact we water our plants and eat the roots – Ian is sure he had picked 24 – the harvested tomatoes were in a crate still in one of the tunnels – they were unattended for 5 hours whilst more pumpkins were planted.
To enter the competition simply email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org – by Wednesday 18th July; we’ll notify winner with details of how to collect their share and publish the results.
