We have had the joy of watching one of the chickens who had become broody, sit on 12 assorted eggs and successfully hatch 7 new chicks! It has been wonderful to see how protective she is, scooting all the chicks under her if anything alarming approaches, and to hear the cheep and cluck to each other.
Sue holding one of the other Green Patch chickens
we found newts in the pond
(they are now back in their home)
have been glorious!
These tomatoes were on their way to becoming soup
to go with these delicious cheese and herb scones.
The blackberries have been
plump and delicious
especially when combined with
the Green Patch apples
bubbling in a pan and on their way to
becoming blackberry and apple crumble.
Everyone had a crumble to take home - yum!

Early in the year Carole and the group spent time cutting up fabric pattern pieces from old jeans and vintage fabrics in order to create marvellous reversible sun hats.
During the summer sessions
the fabric was sewn together
and modelled out on The Green Patch
You can see more of the group's lovely creations here

Sue had a dream, a dream that all the group would make and bake entries for this year's Umbrella fair in Northampton. Carole was on hand to help with the Animal sculptures made from Green Patch produce and the table gardens. It was a busy, action packed day!
Combine all the ingredients, beat till smooth
add chocolate chips
bake, then decorate,
four for the show, two to take home.
Vegetable, mineral, animal?
Assorted vegetables about to become
the whole menagerie!
The undercover action garden
The fairy garden
The farm garden
Pirate Natalie - inspired by her commended garden, is practicing for next year!
