NEWSLETTER JULY - AUGUST 2014

EDITORIAL

This newsletter comes to you as the July/August edition because of family commitments that have taken the editor away from allotment business.

This, together with two plots that are cropping furiously, left me short of editorial capacity!

May I begin firstly by congratulating the organisers of the stunning MacMillan Nurses event. What a great effort by everyone concerned, including a whole host of supporters. An amazing £2000.00 was raised for this very worthy charity. Huge thanks also to those who supported Moseley in Bloom, on the only dull and drizzly Saturday we had in June.

The cakes you generously supplied were delicious, raising a total of £80.00 and our first foray into plant swapping took off and will be repeated I’m sure on a much bigger scale in the future.

So, after a month when the weather seemed to have been conducive to ‘good gardening’, we had a heatwave followed by a deluge. This has put a considerable strain on our horticultural skills as well as our water supply, which we continue to monitor weekly.

However, let’s celebrate and enjoy all the vegetables, fruit, herbs and salads rapidly gracing our kitchens, whilst remembering to plant autumn-cropping vegetables, including those that will over-winter.
