Most of the plot is now divided into mini-plots, with individuals each taking responsibility for a numbered mini-plot. 'Garden together' events, where as many members as possible come along are posted on the website regularly. Large tools are provided but please bring your own small trowel, fork and gloves. If you are interested in having a mini-plot, please register on the website and post a comment with your enquiry.

Hi Jennifer! Looks like Miko is organising for people to meet at 11.00 this Saturday. Suggest we continue with 11.00 as the Saturday time when I'm back from holiday, as it seems to suit most people better. 

So, the usual group gardening times from now on - 11.00 a.m. Saturdays, 11.00 a.m. Wednesdays.

Have a great time! See you again Wednesday 20th. Maggie

Last few saturdays we have met 11-12.
I will try to make it this sat, who else can come?
Excited to see potatoes coming up!

I am away now until Wednesday 20th April.

Archie will be around on Wednesday 13th and George will try to provide some cover, or arrange for someone else to do so.

Jobs to be continued with are weeding the raised bed that we have planted up and digging over triangular bed.

Once we get into May, we can plant up the other raised bed with vegetables that can't cope with cold and frost - including courgettes, squash and tomatoes.

Look forward to seeing you all mid-April. Maggie

Thanks for all the comments, folks, and for the photos, Shiva. Change of plan for tomorrow, Wednesday. First we will plant Archie's seed potatoes (hope you're bringing them along, Archie.) Second, we'll think about winter vegetables - seems odd with spring just coming, I know, but the seed for leeks, kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts - whatever you feel like growing - need to go in now.

The runner bean wigwams can wait a while - beans can't go out anyway until May because of the risk of frost.

See you tomorrow! Maggie

Thanks Maggie for the gardening session on saturday - the first time I have planted seed potatoes!

Jess, sorry but your dog must be kept on a lead and under proper control in the park, he/she wouldn't be able to wander freely.

Shiva, great pictures.

Maggie I have asked staff to sort out some tools for you, I will let you know when they have them available for you.
