We got a lot done today despite no compost delivery, (compost should come next Saturday).
Dave dug a “Swale” ( I hope I’ve spelled that right) -down in the front community plot where heavy rains create a little river, washing away the topsoil, whilst all us ladies stood around being very useful, instructing him on what to do.
A Swale is a Permaculture concept of digging a ditch with the intention that it catches the water and allows it to soak into the soil so it can be utilised rather than lost as it washes everything away .
We also removed the grow net out the front on the verge to allow pollination and more public access as it appears the public walking by aren’t harvesting the broccoli & capsicums in there as they can’t see in.
There was a bit of harvesting, from which I personally procured a rather attractive little pumpkin which is destined to become some soup. There was also some Leeks, Cauliflower, Bok Choy, Lettuce, Broccoli, Shallots, Potatoes….
And Thankyou for morning tea to the people who brought the cupcakes and coconut cake. SO yummy!!!
