Weatherwise March is usually a pretty bleak month with any fine sunny days being a bonus. That is why here on Eigg some locals have their own polytunnels which makes life a little easier when it comes to growing our own fruit & veg.
A gardening club was started 2 years ago and has become quite popular with islanders who order & exchange their seeds and plants at arranged meetings.
When delicious fruit & veg is in full spate, any excess is usually sold in our local shop or T-room, so that residents and visitors to Eigg can sample our locally grown produce.
The schoolchildren too get in on the act with their very own geo-dome and have a vine tree growing in which it produced some lovely green grapes last year . Hopefully over the next coming months we will be able to keep you posted as to how everything is growing and will have some good tips from our greenfingered friends here on Eigg . . . Tip for the month from John our local postie .
To get you’re garlic of to a great start put it into the freezer overnight before planting out. .
