Rhubarb, Strawberries, Asparagus, Raspberries, Bees, Butterflies, and a whole bunch of greening herbs – including a fab bunch of sorrel – all seen this week!  If you haven’t been down to the garden, you’ll have missed the sight of plots starting their repair! This was the result of concerted efforts of all gardeners at our Member’s Day Dig in last week. And talking gardeners – hooray for ignoring a slight shower to get out and get dirty!  Thanks to Jane for the lemon/poppyseed muffins and Cathy for her Membership Secretary skills in dealing with fees & etc.  Wanting to volunteer to help weed and clean out the beds of the Historic Kitchen Garden – come out on Earth Day, April 22nd, 11.00 a.m.  You will be rewarded by a special treat: refreshments afterwards in the Officers’ Mess Kitchen! This is a super opportunity to learn about what goes into and what doesn’t get planted in a historic kitchen garden (i.e. no tomatoes). The Historic Kitchen Garden is located behind the canteen on the west side!  Rain or shine, see you there!
