What’s Growing Now
Sunday, April 24, 2016
We took a walk around the Southwark Queen Village Community Garden to get a better idea of just what’s coming up in this unpredictable spring weather.
Lots of lettuces look ready to eat.
Irises have started blooming, on the tail end of tulips and the last of the daffodils.
Fava beans are still a little way off, but growing nicely.
Lots of garlic planted last fall, as in this City Harvest plot.
Rhubarb should be ready to pick soon…
.. just in time for the strawberries.
And for those with the patience to grow them, peas.
Our chamomile did not prove to be perennial, but seeded three new plants this spring instead. More on drying the lovely little flowers for tea later in the season.
