DSC_0002

There are some tomato plants going free on Plot 31.

The varieties on offer are: Rosella; Tomande; Green Envy; Japanese Black Trifele; Carbon; Il Pantano Romanesco; Sakura.

Please help yourself if you want any of them. They are by the greenhouse door. Please return the pots after you’ve replanted the tomatoes.

* If you have any surplus plants or seeds to give to other plot holders or any allotment equipment you want to sell or give away, please email pearlygran@yahoo.co.uk so they can be advertised on this website.

*Sorry, they’ve all gone!

Plot Numbers

You may have noticed new number marker posts appearing on some plots at the site.

They are to help committee members know which plot is which when they carry out monthly inspections.

They will eventually be installed on all the plots.

Plant Sale

Denis Vickers, who judges our annual allotment competitions, is holding a plant sale to raise money for the Air Ambulance.

A wide range of flower and vegetable plants will be on sale at the event at The Larch, Beacon Lane, Woodnesborough, CT13 0PB, on Saturday, April 27 from 10am to noon.

 

 

All Change

The clocks change on Sunday which means that the earliest time you can start a bonfire at the allotments will be 4pm.

But, in any case, Sunday will be your last chance for the time being to have a bonfire on site because the allotment rules say they are not allowed at all from April 1 to September 30.

As another sign of the changing seasons, the water will be switched on on Monday.

The first plot inspections of 2019 will also take place next week.

 

Spuds if you like

DSC_0001Everyone who ordered seed potatoes from Terry has now collected them but there are still a few bags available.

The varieties on offer are: Duke of York first earlies; Kestrel second earlies; King Edward maincrop.

They are £2.20 per 2kg bag.

If you want to buy some, please speak to Terry (plot 18) or Ron (plot 22b).

Don’t forget your potatoes

There’s another chance for you to pick up your seed potatoes tomorrow. The site shop will be open from 10am to noon.

Anyone who has not yet collected the seed potatoes they ordered from Terry Johnson is urged to do so.

Full payment must be made on collection.

 

Water-harvesting scheme moves forward

 

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.
