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 everyone,

Daniel and I are really looking forward to the garden together on Sunday. We'll come from 2pm as Maggie suggested, but let us know if other times are better. We'd absolutely love to start working on a free plot or two! See you on Sunday, Helen & Daniel

Hi everyone,

As we are all quite busy this time of year, I thought I would ask for suitable dates for the next dig together day. The next day I am available is Sunday 29th May. Is anyone else free on 29th, or suggest another day if preferable?

Also, it looks like we have 2 plots available now, so if anyone asks how to join while you are gardening, tell them to sign up to this website and request a plot! First come, first served. 

Maggie - I would love to take a courgette off your hands. I can be available on Sunday, but probably quite early - 8.30-9.00. If that doesn't suit, no problem I can meet Wednesday/Thursday next week too

Best wishes,

I am away for a couple weeks from the 20th, Kim. I could do Wednesday or Thursday next week early evening if that would work for you. Maggie

Hi Maggi,

Very exciting news about the hose! Though with the current weather, we might not need it for while ;)

I would love to take a courgette plant off your hands if possible, though I'm away this weekend. I'll be around the weekend of 21/22nd.. I often visit during the week after work as well, so I'm not sure if that might work better? Otherwise I can always collect it from the shed!

PS I still have some courgette plants to spare. Post here if you would like one or two and we can meet up in the park to hand them over. Maggie

We finally have a new tap and we can use the hose when we need to. Here's how...

1. Get tap top from shed - it's hanging on a nail on the right-hand side - and fit it on the tap (outside the toilets, if you don't know it.)

2. Pull the hose out from under the door next to the tap and push it on to the tap fitting.

3. Unwind the other end of the hose. It is curled up outside the gates that lead to the yard outside the cafe kitchen. Make sure there are no kinks.

4. Go back to the tap and turn the water on.

5. When you have finished, put the tap top back on the nail in the shed. (Very important, otherwise the whole thing will fall apart again!)

This being a community garden, it is really nice if people hose  vegetables on other plots as well as their own when the have the hose out. And don't forget the runner beans on the tennis court fence. I planted them out yesterday and hopefully we will all get some beans later in the summer.   Maggie

Really sorry to hear about your Dad, Eve. Sorry to see you go as well but thanks for letting us know. All best, Maggie

Hi Maggie, hi everyone.

we have been away recently because my dad died unexpectedly. Sorry to be out of touch

we have decided that we are not able to keep up the plot at the moment. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to join in and good luck to all the gardeners this year.

Hi everyone,

I have courgette plants to distribute to anyone who would like a few. I can be up on the allotment any time next Sunday. Let me know if you would like to meet me there for a handover. Maggie

Hi Jacob and Eve,

We haven't seen you and your plot has got a lot of grass and nettles growing among the spinach. Can you confirm whether or not you want to continue with it this year? This is the third time of asking. If we don't get a reply this time we will assume you have moved on and re-allocate the plot to one of the people waiting. Hope all is well with you. Best, Maggie
