Plants dropped off today.

Artichokes – Perennial. So put them somewhere they can stay. They grow quite big – 4 ft high, and 2-3 feet wide. Celeriac – autumn/winter harvest. Need to be planted out in their final position soon. Tomatoes – from seedsavers – a variety that has been grown in Ireland for years. Planted very early, so they have got a bit leggy – fix this by planting them fairly deeply. They have been outside for a good few weeks, so they are pretty hardy.
.....Thanks Anna

South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project

The South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project started in April 2007. We have a derelict site on loan from ST Salvage Company that we have converted into a community food garden. This is a continuation of the initial successful Dolphins Barn Community squatted food garden that was on the canal from 2005 -2007.
