Dirty Hands

This afternoon seven of us visited the Dirty Hands Project over in Plaistow, east London. Mikey Tomkins linked us in with this project which has had some funding from Capital Growth. The area is much larger than ours and has about 120 grow bags! I've posted some photos on facebook. It's always great to visit other gardens to get ideas for things we would like to try growing. So our wish list from today is as follows:
  • Sage (we already have a variegated plant - but want more varieties)
  • Curly leaved lettuce
  • Plum and beefsteak tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Pink flowered runner beans
  • Pak Choi
  • Big leaf mustard
  • Peas
  • French Marigold
Francis is also keen to grow some callaloo but is not sure where to get the seeds - will do some searching and see where that leads.

Many thanks to Alison Skeat for showing us the garden and the lovely gift of some beetroot! We are always keen to meet other gardeners too, so please get in touch if you want to visit us at Lansbury Gardeners.
