The Radcliffe site continues to amaze us, and we’re over the moon to have lots of growth this year. So far we’ve managed to harvest potatoes, radishes, lettuces, kale, onions and courgettes.
Talking of courgettes, we grew a rather large one, some of which has since been made into a rather delicious risotto!
It also turns out we have a family of deer making the most of the site too. They clearly have a sweet tooth though as we’ve been stripped of most of the berries and strawberries.
The pupils from St John’s have been a great help on site and developed a real enthusiasm for growing. We hope we’ll see them over the summer holidays and when the new term starts.
Work on the seating areas is coming along nicely, this part of our plan to make the site accessible for all. Whether that’s to come and help out, or simply just for a chat and social interaction.
In the meantime, ideas on a postcard…what shall we do with the boat?
