While I'm just delighted that many of you have booked in for the very first inThe Kitchen Garden Day with Mickey, I'm also thrilled that LINDA ROSS will return for our INTRODUCTION TO KITCHEN GARDENING AUTUMN/WINTER on SATURDAY 11 MARCH. In line with our new approach, Linda will be taking two of these days a year - one at the beginning of each big season.
This will be a comprehensive day for those beginning their very own Kitchen Garden. For those of you who haven't met her, Linda simply bubbles with effervescence and fun, as well as an encyclopaedic knowledge of organic veg gardening. Generous with her advice about all the basics; from design and how to get started, through to soil, compost, pests and disease, and in particular at this time of year, she'll be sharing advice on what to plant and how to care for winter veg in your own environment. So whether you're gardening in Sydney, the north or south coast or inland, there will be plenty of advice to be had. Linda always provides a full set of notes and it will be exciting to have her here at Glenmore again.
On the day you'll find me in the kitchen garden collecting, and in the pantry with Kim preparing a lovely lunch for you to enjoy. Of course it wouldn't be a Glenmore Day without a scrumptious cake to kick off morning tea on your arrival! I wonder which one it will be (I've deliberately not made a cake since Christmas) but the rhubarb is looking rather good....
As we near the end of possibly the most difficult season we've experienced (I've lost track of the number of days over 40 degrees), I must declare there have been challenges a-plenty, no doubt for Linda in her Sydney garden too, so it will be a day of problems aired, shared and discussed to benefit us all.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. For full details and to make a booking, please click here.
Linda and I will very much look forward to seeing you on the day and remember, we're always delighted to see return participants - we know there is so much to take on board and we certainly don't think you're inept because you're back again!
Very best wishes as always,
