About Twigs

I am a Project Organiser for a local charity called * CSV/RSVP which is situated in the South West of the UK.

I take great pride in the Garden Club and also as we are now entering another phase of this project, we are starting a new Twigs Garden Club set ready to go in another area of Poole. This gives more members more choice of dates and activities, plus a bigger social circle of friends !

We began with just a few basic ideas, over time these have been tailored to the needs and wishes of everybody and as an Organiser for CSV/RSVP it must be emphasised that club members are not volunteers nor expected to become volunteers unless wishing to do so.

Here are some of the highlights of Twigs:

We are always pleased to welcome new members, including online ones.
Apart from browsing my blog [we love to read your comments] perhaps you might also like to come and join us once a month at one of our meetings for a spot of social garden chat over a refreshing cuppa and a slice of naughty homemade cake! We also produce a quarterly Newsletter, have raffles and monthly plant swaps to name but a few and you never know what you may go home with.

Should anyone feel they have an hour to spare and would like to start a Twigs Project in their local residential area please contact me for a quick chat by emailing deetrish12spot@gmail.com

August Vegetable Garden

Here are your jobs for the Veggie patch:

Sow your last batch of carrots and turnips for this year.

Onion seeds and winter cabbages, cauliflowers for next Spring.

Check out:-

Runner beans, french beans, courgettes everyday don't forget they grow overnight so regular harvesting is a must.

Potatoes and tomatoes need also checking for signs of blight.  Don't forget to water!

Feed those pumpkins with some liquid feed getting them ready for Halloween.

Harvest your broad beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, cucumbers & beetroot.

Pick all those fruits that you can as this is the month for fruit picking.

Blackberries are in abundance this year so let’s go picking!

Strawberry runners can be lifted from the mother plant to pot up ready for new plants next year.

Not forgetting to dry out any early sown garlic, onions, shallots so as to get them ready for winter storage.

More from Twigs Allotment next month.
