Fungus, Lunch and Harvest

Loved this very delicate fungus growing at Community Roots on Volunteer Tuesday. I have tried to identify it but had no luck. https://www.wildfooduk.com/mushroom-guide/.

Lunch was a delicious spread of salads all picked from the gardens.

The squash harvest is wonderful! This is just half of it.

Roots, Books and A Poem

We spent the morning with the Roots community today for Volunteer Tuesday. P and I planted over 1000 winter salad seeds and the lovely Mr S was working with a team on laying out the beds in the new poly tunnel.

National Read a Book Day on September 6 calls all book lovers to indulge in their favorite hobby, guilt-free. Bringing new worlds to life, books enlighten us and transport us on exciting adventures. They can challenge our perspectives on the human experience in ways unmatched by other media. In a world deluged by technology, National Read a Book Day encourages us to silence the noise and turn the pages for a while.”
Here are the books we are reading at the moment:

Brian Bilston, poet, alerted me to the fact that today is National Book Day and here is his poem, posted here with his permission. I love his clever  sense of humour.

Volunteer Tuesday, Tomatoes and A Dog

Community Roots was our destination today for whatever jobs were necessary.  The tomato tunnel is overflowing with wonderful fruit and we volunteered to record all the varieties on photos, pick a few of each and organise a taste test. Here are some of the tomatoes being grown.

There is a jobs list for morning and afternoon and as we all chose our jobs this wee chap was watching me closely.
