Blackfly on the Artichokes
Apparently, artichokes are susceptible to blackfly aphids. Apparently soapy water gets rid of them (tips here). I'll leave a spray bottle (eg widowlene bottle) nearby the artichokes tomorrow for regular spraying. In a few weeks time we might also try the nettle fertiliser approach.
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.
