It may feel as if it’s only five minutes since you dug up this year’s potatoes but it’s already time to start thinking about next year’s crop.

The Association is, once again, offering a range of seed potatoes at the bargain price of just £1.10 per kg.

There will be nine varieties on offer.

First Earlies: Pentland Javelin, Casablanca, Duke of York white

Second Earlies: Charlotte, Marfona, Kestrel

Maincrop: Sarpo Mira, Cara, King Edward

They come in 2kg bags.

If you want to buy some, please place your order with Terry Johnson ( plot 18) by October 16.

Payment will be due when you receive your seed potatoes.

Because the Association is offering these bargain-priced seed potatoes we will not accept any orders for seed potatoes through the Kings Seeds Catalogues.

Any other orders from the Kings Seeds Catalogue  must be placed by November 1.  Please pass your order to Pearl or Ron Barton (plots 21b and 22b ) with full payment, either by cheque or in cash.

We’re firing up the barbecue again!

Summer may be drawing to a close but it’s never too late for a barbecue!

Join us by the large container on Sunday, September 9 from 1pm. All plotholders are welcome with their family and friends.

We will be holding a raffle so prize donations would be greatly appreciated. Bring them along on the day or give them to committee members in advance.

Any profits will go into association funds.

Can you help?

If you have any produce, plants or flowers which you are willing to donate to a stall at Deal Hospital Fete this Saturday, please leave them by the notice board in the main car park.

Donations  will be collected before 6pm on Friday and again before 9am on Saturday.

All proceeds  will go to Deal Hospital.
