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.

And this one - on my devices at least - is perfect! Thanks again. Maggie

Hi Helen - and thanks so much for doing this. Unfortunately when I open the map, the names are displaced, i.e. not on their plots. I'm on a Mac, so maybe it works better on a PC. Is anyone else having a problem? Maggie

Hi Maggie and all, sorry I couldn't come today. I have rugby commitments every Sunday until the end of the season on the 21st April. I won't be able to make the 15th, but will be around much more after the 21st. Hopefully see you all then!

Hi, nice to see you all today. Unfortunately we are away on the 15th so won’t be able to join.

The date of the capital growth Big Dig this year is Saturday April 21st. 

I can't make that day myself - am running a workshop on Depression in Kings Lynn - so am going to suggest we have our personal Big Dig on the Sunday before, which is

SUNDAY 15TH APRIL, starting at 1.00 and carrying on until whenever. 

As Fausto said today, this is the event in the year where we all do our very best to be there. The Park normally provides sandwiches and wood chips and farm yard manure and we work together to get everything ship shape for the summer.

Can you put the date in your diary if it is possible for you, and post here whether or not you will be coming along?

Great to see a lot of you up at the plots and to meet the new members, Emily and Owain.

A little update... Since I got home it has become clear that all four of the people on the playground plots would like to come onto the main plot, following serious vandalism over there. It seems like a priority to 're-home' them, so Kirsty, Sally, Tiffany and Barbara are now all going to be joining us on the main site, and for the moment we are not, after all, able to offer space to more refugees - or for that matter to anyone. 

Mick Guerin has chatted to me about space becoming available for plots in the children's zoo later in the year. If this happens, we can revisit the situation then.

This leaves the question of what to do with the four raised - now vacant - beds in the children's playground area. It seems that anything planted there is vulnerable to being ripped out by invading teenagers, as happened last time. Is it worth planting anything - maybe something prickly like gooseberry bushes? Does anyone have a suggestion? 

Happy gardening! Maggie
