Harvest time in the Good Neighbours Garden
In the Friday gardening club (20-09-13) we picked some vegetables – courgettes, tomatoes and a small green fruit. the cucamelon we experimented with ( see James Wong webpage about cucamelons) – see below
We also went on a trip out to a local garden where a member of good neighbours said there were apples that needed to be collected. We did this (see photos below) and came back with a fair haul of apples whihc we hope to turn into apple crumbles and apple pies to pass round at the next coffee monring
cucamelons – not very big, but very tasty

Tony now brings in some coffee grounds from a local café every week. We use it as a mulch and soil conditioner, but they don;t seem to deter the slugs as much as people make out

Still lots of tomatoes growing and some cucumbers. Be interesting to see how many of the remaining tomatoes turn red or stay green

Off to do some apple scrumping!
Some of the apples were quite high up! Paulette talks to Joan about the garden we visited
