Message from Peter Bucknell - Chair of the Lerryn Produce Association
Sunday 6th February 2011
I am writing this blog on Sunday 6th February, a nice mild Cornish winter day. Our first camellia, St. Ewe, flowered yesterday. This is quite amazing because, in what we used to call a normal winter, St. Ewe was normally in flower at Christmas. It certainly shows the effect of the cold spell, it must be global warming! Let us hope the the mild weather continues when things should come on apace.
Please note that our AGM will be held on Monday 7th March at 7.30 pm in the village hall. Please come along, as we are always looking for new committee members and perhaps a chairman.
Our vegetable gardening guru tells me that you should now be planting broad beans, shallots, onions, leeks, carrots and parsnips. Apparently it’s a bit early to be planting peas as they could be caught by a late Lerryn frost. You should take his advice, as he does earn the odd prize at the show!
