What a busy spring we have had!
Most recently we have participated in and helped organise a Street Party on our street. It was a wonderful day. The street was closed and there were children running up and down the street on scooters and playing football. Lots of people were suprised by how many people they didn’t know from our street and about how many kids there were. It rained a lot and we enjoyed a typical British situation of having a BBQ in the rain.
We are very excited with the plants growing on top of the bike shed roof. We have many herbs (oregano, mint, chives, thyme and lavender), edible flowers (nasturtiums and calendula) wild flowers, lettuces, strawberries, kale, chard, basil…
We have recently added an irrigation system and a water butt.
