Autumn is the season for meetings – ah well, the evenings are getting too dark for gardening. Anyway, the Dunbar Allotments and Gardens committee will be meeting in October. We’ll be getting updates on theThistly Cross allotments, and on our search for other possible sites for Council allotments within Dunbar.
We’ll also be having a meeting of all the allotment holders at Thistly Cross at some point. There too there will be lots to discuss, towards the end of our first growing season on the site. I’m very pleased with the crops I’ve harvested this year. Even allowing for the short season – we only started working the plots in July – I’ve had cabbage, kohl rabi, lettuce, beetroot, peas, courgettes and French beans, with lots more to come. My fruit bushes are established, and I’ve put in posts for a fruit cage for next year.
Meanwhile, my friends at the Amisfield Walled Garden in Haddington are having their AGM on the 30th of September. The Garden has come on tremendously in the last year, and I’m delighted to see it flourishing.
