What' s new in the garden


It was one of those glorious summer days at the end of June last year when the Shared Gardfen got together with friends and members of the West Bridgford Skills exchange to eat, drink and chat in the gardens. Images >> and a slideshow.

We had some lovely food made from produce in the garden. Try our Lemon and Elderflower Marmalade or our herb Pesto

What one of our recent members thinks about being part of the Shared Garden Project.

It's been a delight for me to be a Friend of the Shared Gardens this year. I've enjoyed putting in the hard graft and being in the gardens' peaceful surroundings and working alongside some really nice like-minded people, sharing ideas and opinions as well as getting some enjoyable exercise.

But now the fruits of our labour are starting to become evident - and today I was able to go home with redcurrants, blackcurrants, gooseberries, plums, mange-touts, broad beans, carrots and potatoes!

Working alongside Karina is fun too and between us today we managed to erect a real Wallace and Gromit construction with the aim of catching the plums from the heavily-laden tree before they reach the ground and rot.

Well, fellow gardeners - see what your make of it (if it hasn't been blown down in the wind by the time you get there!). Happy gardening and happy harvesting!
