It’s not been a gardeners summer so far, but despite the slug and snail onslaught there are still a few edible things still growing in the garden.
This gallery contains 3 photos.

2011 has been a good year in the garden at house244. We had a good harvest of potatoes, tomatoes, chard, walking stick cabbages, runner beans, lettuces, rocket, borage and peas, but the borlotti beans, carrots and sweetcorn were a little disappointing. In three years though we’ve established the veg garden well, and next year we plan to expand the veg beds into the other side of the garden (left in photo above), which will all be aided by the new greenhouse… which after many hours has resulted in the picture below, just need to put in the glass now… yeah rather important but at least the structure is up!
We have Larry Bourgeois from the USA staying with us at House244 in Oxford next week and have asked him to share with us a little about his work and projects on Friday night (19th).
Larry is into creating third places for spiritual renewal and his projects include award winning espresso bars, community coffeehouses, bookstores and community centres. He works for the Episcopal Diocese of S. Ohio around Fresh Expressions of church and by all accounts can make a mean espresso. You can find out more at: larrybourgeois.me
Join us for a relaxed drink and nibbles from 8pm on Friday 19th.
