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.

GARDEN TOGETHER next Sunday afternoon, June 17th. It is Queens Park Open Gardens day and we are one of the open gardens, so a great opportunity to both sort out and water the plots and chat to people coming by about what we are up to.

Can you please post if you can come and, if so, between what times?

Any time in the afternoon is good but if I have an idea when you will be there, I can try and make sure the afternoon is covered one way or another. All best, Maggie

Dry times. Do you think we should organise a watering rota?

Any volunteers?

Great to hear you've got help, Colm. I'd noticed not a lot was happening...

Hi Maggie, my friend Jessie is giving me a hand with the plot I've been so busy lately. Just in case you see a stranger working on it and wonder what she's at!

And thanks Fausto for planting them!

Oh yes totally fine! I didn't realise there was a communal potato bed. Thanks :)

It’s the communal potato bed, Kirsty - has nothing I. But potatoes.  Organised it at Big Dig as not enough refugee gardeners hung in with us. Hoping to have some of the children with us to harvest then share out the spuddies. Fausto did a helpful thing as they were growing out of their bag I’m sure by now and needed space. Glad the mystery is resolved and hope you’re ok with the sharing scheme.

Oh great mystery solved! Which bed are they in so I know which ones they are :)

Hello Kirsty,

I know what happens with the potatoes. I saw them a few times before and on sunday I decided to plant them on the same bed they were, in a potato row gap.

It might not be the best execution as I dig the whole with my bare hands....but there it goes, the mystery of the walking potatoes is resolved!!

Saw it there just before I went to Glasgpw, Kirsty. No idea what’s become of it. You could try asking a park keeper if there’s one in the hut. They are mostly friendly and take an interest. Maggie
