Tuesday March 28th hot and sunny

With 18 people:

  1. We tried to pick roccolla but there was barely enough for the kitchen let alone to sell.  The plants have all got what looks like a mould or fungus on them –  probably because of the unseasonably hot weather.  As we only recently planted these plants we decided to cut them right down and put liquid fertiliser on them and hope that they grow up better.
  2. We planted basil on two beds in the Seed Garden.
  3. We watered the fruit trees in New Horizon.
  4. Three of us did a lot of lettuce seed this morning. We have to be sure that we pick the seed pods at the right time.  Dry enough to handle before the wind gets up and blows it all away.
