Hi Jenna,

I'm confused about whether we have a plot waiting for a new member, now that Ana has dropped out. Is there someone else, or are you continuing with the plot until you go, or is it free if someone else asks? Maggie

Hi Kim and Jenna,

I had three courgette plants left and they are tucked in behind one of the bunches of chives in the long narrow bed closest to the cafe. Can you divide them up between you?

Hi Maggi, 

If you've still got courgette plants to give away, I could do this Thursday around 6.25pm. Unfortunately I've not go much leeway with timings as I finish work at 5.30pm and I've got a rugby game at 6.45pm! Do you think that could work?

And Jenna, I should be around on Sunday the 29th of May for the next dig together, so that would be a good day for me.

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

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.
