Spring is fi­nally here and there is plenty of ac­tiv­ity in the Com­mu­nity Gar­den. We planted sev­eral plum trees and a large num­ber of ap­ple trees, many of which are now in blos­som and looking great. The out­side plots have been ploughed and ro­ta­vated ready for potato plant­ing and for all the other ex­cit­ing veg­eta­bles peo­ple are go­ing to grow! In the poly-tun­nel, spinach, let­tuce and chard are al­ready be­ing har­vested while toma­toes, beetroot and car­rots are start­ing to flour­ish. Sev­eral new peo­ple have joined us and taken on plots of their own to grow their own pro­duce – but there is still room for lots more (just bring your own spade). Why not join us – phone Declan Mur­phy at 086 1697739 or Finian McEvoy at 086 2476822. The Com­mu­nity Gar­den is hav­ing an open day on May 7 be­tween 2 and 4 p.m. so do come and have a look around. Bring the chil­dren too but please keep dogs on leads. Tea and bis­cuits will be pro­vided. (From the small car park op­po­site the post of­fice in Laragh fol­low the track lead­ing down along the road and the gar­den is in front of you).
