It’s a free all-day tomato planting extravaganza with kids making wooden planters, filling them with plants which will be then distributed outside shops in the New Cross area. And how many varieties of Tomato will be planted, do you think? 92! How mad is that? Dig This certainly know a bit about the ‘umble tomato! Have a look here for the varieties they have on sale.
Added to this, there’s food and drink, music, various crafts and 50% discount on tomato plants and off the happy seeds range. More info here. Hopefully soon I will be taking the Dig This challenge and see how my tomatoes get on with their secret weapon (diluted horse manure as liquid feed.)
The event is on the 17th May, 11-6pm at St James’, SE14 6AD, New Cross Gate (one street down from Goldsmiths University). New Cross/New Cross Gate Station.
