A great little open day in the kitchen garden

067

Saturday's open day was a real success. Plenty of garden lovers came to see the little oasis in the hotel at No.1 Pery Square. The Limerick GIY group made up the bulk of visitors which was great as their enthusiasm is real and infectious. Good to be part of it all. In this pic I'm demonstrating how to plant garlic in a wine box, not a full one!

We're still waiting for tomatoes to ripen but have red cabbage, runner beans, parsnips and courgettes still coming on

Apples

We had some lovely, local apples from Askeaton and we planted a heritage variety apple tree from Seedsavers Ireland, so in a few years, the hotel will have its own apples

Choccy mint

One of the more unusual herbs, chocolate mint

Cabbage

A handsome, city cabbage

Thanks to Anthony Furlong for taking all the photos, and helping with the watering!
