The National Trust is holding its annual White Cliffs Plant Fair this weekend.
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.
Everyone 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).
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.
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 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 email@example.com or find him on his plot 58B.
If you ordered seed potatoes from Terry Johnson you will be pleased to know they are now ready for collection.
Terry (plot 18) and Ron Barton (plot 22b) will be on site tomorrow morning (Saturday) from 10am to 12 noon to hand them out.
You must pay on collection. Just a reminder – the potatoes are £1.10 per kg and come in 2kg bags.
