This summer's warmth and sunshine has blessed the small community gardens of TTT Incredible Edible, with an abundance of herbs, vegetables, fruit and edible flowers, as well as many happy picnics and gardening sessions for the volunteers.
Small but faithful groups of folk continue to tend the Rockery, Steamer quay planters and Rowing Club beds, as well as Fernbank. Occasionally travellers from other parts of the world join us to lend a hand.
Last weekend we enjoyed the first harvesting session at the Follaton arboretum and Town cemetery, with lots of new volunteers, recently moved to Totnes to join in. We picked up masses of windfall apples, and took away a good harvest from a loaded damson tree, leaving much fruit to be enjoyed by those visiting the orchards in that part of town over the next few weeks.
Our weekly session at the Steamer Quay planters will finish at the end of September, although monthly sessions at Borough Park, Fern Bank, and the sessions at the Follaton Forest Garden will continue into autumn.
