Get­ting ready for the grow­ing sea­son

Hamilton News - - ADVERTISING FEATURE - Sarah Wolf (Gar­den Co-or­di­na­tor)

Spring has ar­rived in the gar­den and I am start­ing to set­tle in to my role as co­or­di­na­tor of the gar­den. We’ve been lucky since I be­gan with mostly dry Fri­days to­wards the end of win­ter.

The vol­un­teers have con­tin­ued to har­vest bras­si­cas, radish and green leafy veg­eta­bles, as well as the ever-abun­dant fen­nel.

The chang­ing sea­son brings new har­vest de­lights like the first hand­ful of broad beans, and we’ve been notic­ing gar­lic shoots pop­ping up and the herbs start­ing to come alive.

Mean­while, we’ve been busy tidy­ing up, keep­ing on top of weeds, clear­ing out the glasshouse to make space for pot­ting up in prepa­ra­tion for the grow­ing sea­son.
