Work has been continuing on the water-harvesting scheme with the laying of a feeder pipe to water barrels on individual plots.
This work involved trenching along one of the main allotment paths which has, inevitably, caused disruption and created a build-up of mud.
The association’s chairman, Tony Fursland, offers his apologies to plotholders who have been inconvenienced and says the committee will be organising working parties as soon as possible to put things back to normal.
Have you lost your glasses?
One of our plotholders has apparently left a pair of glasses at Tony the barber’s in Gilford Road, Deal.
If they are yours please pop into the shop to pick them up.
If you are in need of paving slabs there are some going free to plotholders.
They can be found near the large container and also by the side of the leaf container in the main car park.
If you ordered seed potatoes from Terry Johnson in the autumn now is the time to collect them.
They will be available for collection from the site shop in the large container on Saturday from 10am to noon.
You will need to pay for your order on collection. The potatoes, which are £1.10 per kg, come in 2kg bags.
Do you think your vegetables are simply the best?
If so, have you thought of entering them in one of the local shows or even the Kent County Show?
Plotholder Peter Aplin, who is a member of the Kent Horticultural Society and is himself a show judge, is happy to give advice on how to maximise your chances.
To find out more email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or find him on his plot 58B.
