Brockley Station Garden Update

Quick update on the Brockley Station garden which has suffered badly from slugs and snails meaning that there hasn't been much food to pick however there is some now! Val informs us that:

The strawberry plants have lots of fruit which should be ready in the next ten days. There is one globe artichoke ready to pick.Apart from that the garden has been mainly taken over by flowering
plants and mint.

There are also tomato plants which are looking healthy however the courgettes haven't done so well.

Please pop along and if you do pick please only take what you need and remember to tell others about the plot alongside helping out at gardening events!
