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.
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.
