With the talk about making the cemetery extension a wildflower meadow I noticed this article in the Cornwishman this week http://www.thisiscornwall.co.uk/Time-trim-wildflower-meadow/story-202349... and wondered if we might be able to get some help from them? or is Hayle in Bloom and Hayle Town Council running with this now?
Bodriggy Academy has got a veg plot supplying the school kitchen. They found that children really like rhubarb, but the one young plant they have doesn't produce enough. I was wondering if anyone has a rhubarb plant/s that they could donate to the school?
You could let me know and I would be happy to collect it, or bring it to school (say it's for Joanna, Andy or Dave).
The judges for Hayle in Bloom will be walking around the allotment Friday 05 July around half past ten, if a few of you can be there working on your plots and to chat it would be nice
Hi everyone - Anita from plot 19. Just thought I would let you know we have had potato blight this week. We've dug up those affected & treated any remaining plants but I notice there are a couple of other plots with blight.
We also seem to have a bees nest in the ground in our plot - someone from the bee farm is coming to look at that tomorrow for us. Will keep you posted with that one.
Harvested the first of the lovely Red Potatoes kindly shared by Carole called Potato 'Sarpo Mira'.
Despite being stuck under the surprise polytunnel for the last few months (and so probably a bit underwatered) they grew brilliantly. Lovely clean potatoes and make excellent Jacket Potatoes.
Many thanks to Carole for her kind generosity.
Try these for vegetable seeds, I have used them for years, always get 2 or 3 packs of free ones added in, they're quick on delivery and you can pay with paypal.
It's Tara from Plot 20!
This Saturday 6th August @ 2pm, I will be holding a little Jamie @ Home party at the top end of the car park. There will be on display a large selection of Jamie Oliver Garden and home ware; items that can only be seen through his parties. Lots and lots of lovely items.
