Pumpkin Picking Party: Thurs 29th September 2-5pm

CQKVNuzW8AATuePIMG_20150928_115500IMG_20151016_155849Ah, the end of September can only mean one thing in terms of the veg patch: pumpkins and squash! We are now just starting to harvest our beautiful multi-sized pumpkins, and various delicious varieties of squash too (butternuts, Uchiki Kuri, Green Hokkaido, Crown Prince…); but now the evenings are turning chillier, we needs hands to help bring in the harvest and put these beauties in to store in a nice snug polytunnel, to protect them from the colder weather and help them ripen (and taste even sweeter, yum!). We are holding a volunteer afternoon next Thursday (29th) from 2pm-5pm, and looking for willing helpers to come and take part! As well as being great exercise, good fun and an afternoon out in the open air, we will also be providing delicious coffee, teas & cakes from Hartley’s kitchen – plus you can take home a pumpkin or squash too, to taste the rewards of your hard work! If you’re interested please let us know by emailing kate.collyns@gmail.com.
