Does anyone want to share a ton of well rotted manure? It's £50 a ton so would be £25 each. I can do any Sunday in Sept except this weekend (3rd). Would be delivered to the yard (field 6). ... See MoreSee Less

Yes yes yes yes yes

Ps did you take some plums and greengage Jo? The trees are stripped bare so much so that someone must have had a ladder to reach them. I have everything crossed it was you not some cheeky Allotments fruit thief! That would make me angry!

No, not me; I took a few but only ones I could reach.😣 Greengages are delicious! Thanks. OK great re manure - which Sunday us good for you?

Afternoon better for me. Let me know so I can coordinate manure man and sons in law!

You need to watch out for your pears - they all went one year. Maybe net them? Just makes it bit harder.

Glad you got some! We picked some fruit today and will ripen at home....

What about Sunday 24th...

Perfect! I'll get back to you when confirmed.

OK, confirmed - 24th September, 1pm. Let me know if that's alright with you.

Perfect!

Thanks Jo.

Welcome.

I'd be interested in some too if they can deliver a tonne and a half at all? (or two tonnes should a fourth person wanted some).

Kari just letting you know ( because although they're on my plot they affect your vista) I've lowered the height of the contorted willows behind your bench. I've done it with loppers but will tidy it up with the saw if I can. They've shaded out that bed and now I have a crap crop of corn!

No worries at all!

All set for 1pm tomorrow, Kari? Do you want to bring £25 cash for Pete the Manure or you want me to pay him and you pay me back?

We.will bring cash! And a sturdy back to get it up the hill.

The sluice by number 63 is presumably for the big pond (now dry unless it rains) on our plot 55/56.

I think yes!

That's the one Mathieu!

Look like there was a small pond by the farm pub

Quite a large fishpond actually - we've got a picture of it in the exhibition...

wasn't that the end of the catchment canal for the quay pipe? it ran to pretty much where the duckpond is in the farm.

We've got a doc re the History of the Quay Pipe - (and yes its available at the Exhibition!) its pretty complicated, but it could be....

I bought this 4 tier green house to grow some things on my roof but it is too big unfortunately so was wondering if anyone here would like it?

Bought it for £20 happy to get £10. 

Thought Id ask you lovely growers first before sticking it on gumtree.
Can deliver to your plot (:
