BRIAN KIDD: Your letters and this week’s gardening tasks

Have your say

What glorious weather we have been having as summer draws to a close.

It has been perfect for our last harvests. The beans have now finished and beds cleared for sowings of winter vegetables.

The most abundant, though, have been our late potatoes, a magnificent crop.

Youngsters had a great time making scarecrows to take home, ably helped by families, and face-painting in Loopy Loop’s Craft shack was superb.

The not-quite-so-young also enjoyed themselves with tea and a chat at our grow-your-own day for the over-60s festival.

Pop into central library to see our willow teepee, a floating library which we made for the Journeys Festival. It’s on all this week across the city.

If you can help with the garden or the orchard, pop in or call us on 07530 913 211.
