THINGS TO DO IN THE GARDEN – CHIT POTATOES

‘Chitting potatoes’ means leaving your seed potatoes to sprout in a cool (frost-free) place with lots of light. February is a good time to do this in preparation for planting outdoors in March and April.

Local Food Swapping

Food Community Facebook Groups are ideal platforms to swap and share homegrown food. This is a great way to use up surpluses and access produce you haven’t been able to grow. We also have convenient drop-off locations to make swapping easier.
