Hi everyone. Hoping I'm not the only one showing up at 10.00 tomorrow for Jenna's last 'garden together'. Can anyone else make it?  Best Maggie

Sorry about confusion Kim! (and glad you're happy with the squash plant. 

Thanks for your kind offer, Helen and Daniel. I have had my hand op now and well and truly out of action - they say two months before I lift anything or the tendon may snap! So if anyone has the hose out at any time, I'll be extremely grateful if they could water my two plots - one next to the path leading to the tennis hut and one long thin one adjacent to the back cafe courtyard - and also (and especially) the runner beans now starting to grow nicely on the tennis court wire netting fence. 

I will be there on 26th June at 10 to at least say hallo. All best Maggie

Hi everyone,

We'll make sure to come to the dig together on Sunday 26th. Will be great to meet more of you then! We just took over the plot on the front :)

Also, if anyone needs their plots watering whilst away on holiday just let us know :)

Hi Maggi, 

I think there might have been some confusion about free plots - mine is the one next to Leo's and when I went yesterday a squash had miraculously appeared! Haha. I'm happy to keep them in there since nothing much else has taken, but just so you know going forward!

x Kim

Jenna, Sunday 26th June is good for me for garden together as long as my daughter doesn't have her baby early! Time? Maggie

Hallo all,

I've put some squash plants in the plot that Kate can't manage after all, so that it's used until the next new member comes along - I'm sure it won't be long. If you could also give them a bit of water if it's dry while I'm away, that would be great. Kim, if you and Jenna don't have space for all three courgette plants, you can always put on in the 'spare' bed as well. Best Maggie

Sorry for my lack of response. I'm planning to be there on Sunday after 2pm. And happy to water as much as poss!

Hi Maggi,

Thank you for the courgette plants! I will pick one up on Thursday when I swing by. Jenna, I already have another courgette plant growing on my windowsill at home so am happy to take only one and leave the other two for you.

And when I water my allotment I will water the beans too.

Re May 29th, I am still on holiday, Jenna. I can come in June if you suggest a further date,although my hand op will mean I can't do much. Meanwhile, can we/you try collectively to keep the beans I've planted on the tennis court wire netting watered? They are for everyone.... Maggie

Hi Everyone,f

If you're thinking of watering, can you review the instructions I posted before you go to the park (or save them somewhere handy on your phone)?  A park-keeper said someone had been asking him for guidance and told me off for not telling you the key was hanging in the shed etc! Maggie
