It has been a stunning few days at Hewood. After the rains moved along, a light haze filled the valley and the sun beamed down on the hills. We've revelled in pickling cucumbers and courgettes, eating raspberries and today, finally picking this incredible giant heritage tomato, which we split six ways at break time with sour dough and olive oil.
We've spent another tremendous day with our volunteers, freeing up beds, trellising melons, planting spring onions, mustards, rocket, pak choi and snacking on mini white cucumbers. As the seasons change, so must the garden, and with the passing of mid-summer, we begin thinking about the early autumn and all that it brings.
