29 February – End of Summer Newsletter

End of summer harvest…

Farewell wet summer!  And my goodness, its keeping true to form right to the very end!
With the autumn season about to begin, I thought it a good time to remind you of our exciting upcoming events, as well as to let you know some new dates for your diary:


SEASONAL COOKING DAY with yours truly on Friday 16 March – fill my baskets from the garden and cook up a storm.  Sorrel, figs & rhubarb are looking like strong contenders for recipes!


KITCHEN GARDENING DAY with Steve Batley on Saturday 24 March with all the information you need for the month ahead (only a few spaces left).


WINDSOR & JEWELS with Robb Gardener on Wednesday 28 March – a fascinating insight into some of the most notorious pieces of C20th jewellery, with a lovely lunch to follow.
OPEN GARDEN SCHEME WEEKEND, 21 & 22 April (I will give a short talk at 11am & 2pm both days), newsletter will be sent closer to the time.


MONTHLY KITCHEN GARDENING DAY with Linda Ross on Friday 27 April.  It’s the day we have a big focus on compost during the afternoon session – this is always very popular!


HARRIET GOODALL WEAVING WORKSHOP – a second date due to popular demand, on Friday 4 May.  Be sure to book in quickly this time!


And two dates I am really delighted to announce for the first week of WINTER:  I’m sorry they are so close together but that’s just the way it is.  I’ve been hounding these two inspiring women from the Hunter for a couple of years, and, as luck would have it, the dates they can squeeze into their hectic schedules to share their experiences with us at Glenmore, are only a matter of days apart:  PATRICE NEWELL, on OLIVES, GARLIC & LIFE IN THE HUNTER on Friday 1 June and SARAH KEY – a very timely talk (with winter pruning on the agenda for every gardener), about THE GARDENER’S BACK, on Wednesday 6 June.  (newsletters for both these events to follow next month).


I very much hope you will find something on the autumn/winter calendar to tempt you to Glenmore!  Clicking on any of the links will take you to further details, but if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


With best wishes as always,


Mickey
