Hi all! The overnight temperatures have not been conducive to planting out tender veg and there's no sign of improvement. (2 degrees and 3 degrees forecast overnight on Monday and Tuesday next week). 

In view of which and of the recent surge of activity, there seems not a lot of point in trying to organise a Big Dig for this Saturday. I will be there for a bit between 11.30 and 1.00 and hope to see some of you then.

I'd like to try to have a garden together next weekend too, on Saturday 29th or Sunday 30th at 11.30. I have courgette and squash plants to give away and runner beans to plant out and hopefully the weather will be warmer by then.

Would much appreciate if you could each post which of those days  - Sat 29th or Sun 30th - works better for you, then I will choose the day that most people can come. Maggie

Hi everyone,

Looking forward to the Big Dig on the 22nd :) I'm not sure what time it starts but I could make it from about noon onwards. 

Hope that works!

Helen

Hi Everybody!

I've had a couple of complaints...

1. That the hose tap was borrowed and the tap top was returned but not the attachment that allows the hose to be fixed to the tap. If the attachment gets left on the tap, it seems someone feels they have to take it! Can you take care to unscrew it and return BOTH parts to the tennis hut please?

2. This one more serious ... Whoever was up at the plots yesterday (Friday) evening left the shed door unlocked. There is valuable tennis equipment in the hut and if this happens again permission to share the hut will be withdrawn. PLEASE padlock the hut immediately behind you every time, even if you are only going to be gone for a couple of minutes. Thanks. 

BIG DIG ON APRIL 22ND. Always a nice event. The park usually provides sandwiches and they need numbers. CAN YOU POST WHETHER YOU Will BE THERE.  Thanks, Maggie

Dear Maggie,
I am sorry that I can't come this weekend to the garden together days, as I am running a retreat.
I have a good selection of seeds, which I hope to plant in my plot one day next week.
All best,
Julienne

I'm coming on Saturday!

Comment by Kirsty Page on April 5, 2017 at 8:49

Hello!

I can definitely come Saturday, and possibly Sunday - just need to check timings

Thanks!

Comment by maggie turp on April 3, 2017 at 8:29

I will be there both. Phil is coming to help on Sunday too. 

Any chance of the plot plan being ready? Doesn't have to be accurate in terms of measurements, just a plan where I can make a record of who has which plot. Best, Maggie
