Cutting Back

Redbridge Report written by Linda

Ed and Linda met SHP volunteer Chris at the allotment with the intention of finishing the weeding that was started on Wednesday but we found that one of the clients had already done a really good job on that bed.

Instead Ed chose to tend to the various compost heaps and repair one of the pallet areas, Chris pruned back one of the small walnut trees which was starting to over shadow the redcurrant bush and then collected windfall walnuts while Linda strimmed the grass back around the fruit trees then dug up a baby walnut tree which needed resiting as it had sprung up just 4cm from a pear tree.

The local squirrels took offence at us interfering with their nuts and started bombarding us with walnut husks so we took the hint, a quick tidy up and the walnuts safely stored in a tin in the shed and we beat a hasty retreat. 🐿

Angry Squirrels

Redbridge Report written by Linda

Shifting compost in the pallet area at the SHP Allotment got us severely told off by some angry squirrels who had been using it to store their walnuts. The little mouse family in the kitchen waste area were not to happy at being moved a bit and having their habitat dampened down. Mindful of the fact that these little creatures are assisting us in churning up the compost we were kind to our furry friends, we left their nuts where they could be easily found and re-hidden, and were very careful pottering around the mouse house.

We followed on with a little weeding and resiting of some california poppies, then it was time to pack up.

Wonder Wall Of Food

Redbridge Report written by Linda

Our Nargis could not do the full session at the Frenford Food Bank today so sent along a ringer in the form of her cousin Amira. Quick to learn and keen to get on with it Amira proved to be a real asset to the Food Bank team and is interested in looking into GG membership.

AJ put her organisational skills to good use in nappy and toiletries corner again while James continued last nights shelf filling. Yasmin made a welcome return to the team and got on with quiet efficient packing, so too did Sharon who, after a short refresher and introduction to a few changes, was soon making a valuable contribution.

Pretty soon we were all assigned to packing alongside the regular Frenford volunteers. We seemed to be all done in double quick time and in very good humour, from gently teasing James who was keen to organise our untidy rabble to his and Sharon's performance debut with a rendition of Wonder Wall. 🎶

Nargis arrived to relieve Amira and was still there helping to clear up after the last of us left.

I do apologise for not being on the ball and missing half the team out of the photos 🙈 please be assured you all did a great job and it was much appreciated.

Ed assisted Linda with a couple of deliveries after the session which is why he's been added to this mission because Linda was too lazy to set up a separate one. 😜

Composing Our Mettle

Redbridge Report written by Linda

Ed and Linda rolled up to the SHP Allotment at the same time as James arrived by cycle. This week we got straight to work James strimming the paths, Linda removing brambles from the compost (lesson learned, brambles will not breakdown unless shredded) and Ed watering down and hoeing the kitchen waste compost.

Once the battery on the strimmer ran out James switched to helping Ed separate plastic and the metal from the old greenhouse for transportation to the tip.

Todays furry friend was a mouse who came out of hiding in the kitchen waste bin to let Ed know he was getting wet. 💦

Waste Not Want Not

Redbridge Report written by Linda

It was a morning of re-using things. An elderly friend wanted us to take away an old rusty wheelbarrow for her, seeing it was still quite serviceable we commandeered it to transport the old compost from the Hainault Station planters to the SHP allotment. Yes @Julia we did check the planters under the bridge and are pleased to report they had been recently watered so we gave a bemused Station Master a cheery wave and trundled off with our booty.

On arrival at the allotment Ed off loaded our kitchen waste to be re-purposed into compost and then went on to do some watering while Linda off loaded the old compost from the Station into the planter we are preparing for a herb garden. There was not quite enough to finish the top layer but that can always be filled later. The wheelbarrow still has some life left in it and we are storing it for a project of Julia's.

Still no signs of the seeds that were planted the other week but you can tell the weather has been good for plants as the dreaded bind weed is making an appearance again 🙄 The good news is the potatoes are doing really well and possibly due for harvesting.

Here We Go Round The Redcurrant Bush

Redbridge Report written by Linda

We arrived at the SHP allotment and divided up the tasks as usual with Ed tending to the compost bin and watering the fruit trees while Linda tended and watered the beds with other produce.

Todays furry creature encounter was a bold squirrel, we later saw two cats but they didn't hang around long enough to be photographed. No sign of sprouting on D's newly planted bed but T and R's gourd, tomato and bean plot is looking very healthy.

We then set about rescuing the redcurrant bush which was looking a bit sad. Once the overgrown grass was cleared from it we could see it had been starting to fruit but as the fruit was touching the ground it was starting to rot so we fashioned a stake out of a bit of the ex-greenhouse and tied it up hoping it will feel better for it.

Someone had decided to empty out bags of frozen peas and broccoli by the fence 🤷🏼‍♀️ nothing is wasted on this plot so we scooped it up and popped it in with the compost.
