Hi everyone, I have attached an annual vegetable planner for your use. Its a great visual tool you can use which tells you when to sow and harvest many common vegetables. There are so many free resources available online. The below link is direct to the RHS School Gardening activities - which suits growers of all ages - https://schoolgardening.rhs.org.uk/Resources/Find-a-resource?so=0&a...

Wow! What a fantastic day we had on Saturday! Thank you to everyone who came along. It was lovely to see you all again, and makes me very excited for the next few months!

We very nearly completed the footpaths!! Maggie has spoken with Mick from the Park and another bag of wood chip will be delivered this week. It would be wonderful if we could finish off the last of the paths ASAP, as it makes such a difference! See photo below!

We are planning on meeting on Sunday 24th April at 3pm for an hour or so to get the last of it finished. If anyone is available, it would be wonderful to get together to get this finished.

Also, just so everyone is aware - all the plots are currently allocated. Although if anyone is interested in joining, please ask them to register on this forum (they have to sign up to Transition Town Kensal to Kilburn) and when something becomes available they will be the first to hear

Thanks, Jenna

WEAR YOUR WOOLIES!

Hi everyone, Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Forecast is for it to be dry in the morning, thank goodness, but only 9 degrees. Bring gardening gloves and small tools if you have them. Kim, we definitely have a mini plot available for you now. Best, Maggie

Dear Maggie,

Thanks for your advice and I am looking forward to the big dig on Saturday - what time are people planning to come along and start digging!

All best, Julienne

Hi Kim and everyone... For the Big Dig, it's useful to bring gardening gloves and small tools if you have any. There are never enough! You might want to mark the handles of your small tools with a felt-tip pen so that you are sure to get them back at the end. Thanks for your tip, Nilufer. I thought it was especially useful for people who don't have room for a compost heap - and it makes some highly transportable fertiliser for people to bring up to their mini-plots. See you all at the weekend. Maggie

Just a tip, collect your banana skins and egg shells and dry them at home then put them in the oven to make them really dry. After, grind them and sprinkle on your allotment which will make the soil potassium and calcium rich ...You can also buy some seaweed natural fertilizer from ebay and sprinkle together with your banana, egg powder..Seaweed has been used as a soil improve for centuries, particularly in coastal areas. Seaweed contains several useful plant nutrients, including nitrogen, potassium, phosphate and magnesium.

Hi everyone, 

Looking forward to meeting you all at the Big Dig next Saturday. Just wondering if there is anything I need to bring?

Cheers

Kim
