LATEST UPDATE   (8 August 2018, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 10 August)

There are signs that hostilities with rabbits are about to escalate again. A new hole in the garden fence has appeared, and while I haven’t lost any crops, it seems only a matter of time. Another long running battle is maintaining a good water supply to all fields. The problems are less evident in winter, when rainfall fills up the troughs. This long dry spell has highlighted the lack of supply to certain areas, and it’s a work in progress to improve the situation. My efforts thus far to locate and repair various connections have been a bit disappointing, but I will not admit defeat. In the words of a wise relation, we never say anything has gone wrong, it just hasn’t gone right. Yet.
 
In the shop this week we’ll have lots of local veggies, including cucumbers, courgettes, basil and runner beans. We’re also hoping to have local french beans and cherry tomatoes. From further afield we will have aubergines, peppers and fennel, and more doughnut peaches.
 
On offer this month are our popular refuse bags. These are good strong bags for the dustbin and other purposes, they are made with a minimum 50% post-consumer recycled plastic and measure 29 x 39 inches. We have bought four boxes whilst they are on offer, so stock up at the reduced price.
 
Have you thought about buying in bulk to reduce the use of plastic and save money? For example we can get 5 litre containers of washing-up liquid at £7.69 [Ecoleaf] and £9.65 [Ecover]. Ecoleaf claims their products are from sustainably sourced plant materials and are fully biodegradable. The Ecoleaf range is certified animal-cruelty free. Ask about other items in 5 litre containers, such a Faith Shampoo/Conditioner, Suma Shampoo/Conditioner, Laundry liquid and some other cleaning materials.
 
See you there
