|Winter blooms by Carol|
We had a very mixed December. There was snow (fleetingly) after many years of no show while temperatures went up and down. One day it was 5 degrees and two days later 10. No wonder there are still a few flowers in the garden. The picture above was taken just before Christmas, which turned up to be a sunnier and warmer day than expected. Crops doing well in December included cabbage and sprouts.

There are some exciting plans afoot, we are discussing building a meeting hut and we are going to get help from students at the University of Cambridge. Students, postdocs and even lecturers at the University have been helping before - some have moved away but are still in touch.
We get emails from ex members now and then - you might be gone but we have not forgotten you, the photos in this blog show your hard work and your sense of fun. In this nostalgia vein, here are a few photos from our archives that have not been posted before.
Just over a year ago... December 2016
Rebecca sent us these photos to show volunteers removing the strawberry netting. There was an abundance of plants and two boxes were filled to share at the Seedy Sunday event. The oak tree was decorated with festive tinsel by some enthusiastic young visitors.
