Finally our asparagus has yellowed off and sent food reserves back into crowns and root systems – so time to cut it back. Also pruning time for many plants – strawberries, apple and pear trees, brambles and berry canes. Make sure you make your cut at the best biodynamic time, so check the June Notes, now posted. It might also be worth reviewing Simon Rickard’s sage pruning advice.
Our birthday was fun, many pizzas made and eaten, birthday cake and good company. Most gardeners are renewing membership and we have a few new plotholders and diggers. We will be meeting in June to discuss plans for the rest of the year, including digger gardening, new plots and more.
Thanks to Saide for the photographs of birthday and compost making below:
