Happy New Year!

These pictures were taken in late November. Watch out for the December party photos and other photos from our volunteers....

Nasturtium seeds are edible - they taste even nicer than the flowers... They are spicy when raw and can be pickled. We helped Charlotte and Mary to harvest them. Some seeds will be dried and kept to be planted this year. Don't forget to swap and stock up on seeds at the Cambridge Seedy Sunday, on 24 January 2016! Empty Common will have a table there.

The polytunnel has a smart new floor made with attractive grey slabs. Scroll down to see more pictures of the Empty Common Community Garden, which was still quite green and luscious due to mild weather. We are still enjoying a mild weather and no snow has fallen, disappointing big and small children wishing to make a big snowman.
