It was warm today, around 30ºC. So i did some dishes, prepared for the food for the Pot Luck in the evening, washed the veggies we harvested. We made a potato, onion and courgette dish, a cabbage dish with oinions and peppers and chilies and tomatoes and a salad. And then of course everything the people took along. Most of the veggies we gathered from the garden. At the end of the evening we picked some raspberries. Hmmm 🙂
And then the music. Some new people in. Lovely. Lovely. Lovely.
Around half past one i went out of my house and started my walk up to the garden. First i emptied my old paper bag in the special bin for paper. Then a few raindrops. Which only lasted for a minute or so. My head was still filled with the final Harry Potter movie i watched in the morning.
At the garden we first drank coffee and tea. Then we spread out. I went to the greenhouse and looked after the tomatoes. They were really heavy. I cut off some of the lower branches. After that i went out of the greenhouse and started cutting bits of plants besides the paths.
After this i started helping the others. I got out burdock root which grew over the path. Nasty pieces of burr got stock in my hair. Large roots which made me dig deep below the plant. I got them out though.
We harvested our first potatoes. I couldn’t resist taking some home with me. Yum! I seeded rocket and radishes in the space between the potatoes. Some more people arrived. We picked french beans, elderflower berries, red currants, lettuce, apples, tomatoes, potatoes and beetroot.
I was tired. I walked slowly back home. A good day of working!
