The annual Spring bonfire was completed safely and successfully yesterday.
Total fire-feeding hours – 7.5 (09.30 – 17.00) Number of helpers – 10 Step count per helper – 15,000+ (as actually recorded!) Carloads of inappropriate waste removed – 2 (why?) The tonnage of stuff burned – 100+ (well, that’s how it felt anyway!).
Big, big thanks go to those who turned out to help and to Hazel (Plot 66B) for the fantastic lunchtime sausage rolls and cupcakes.
The ash will be cool enough to move in a few days. Please help yourselves to some – excellent for your fruit bushes, strawberries etc.
We have set up a new seed swop point in the Octagon. Thanks go to Raymond on Plot 95A for suggesting this idea and kickstarting us with some seeds.
Val’s heritage Sutherland Kale seeds are also available and if you can’t find what you want there is a wee stock of Dobies’ catalogues with the necessary GFAA discount code that will allow you to buy new seeds at the usual 40% saving.
Please feel free to donate your extra seeds and take what you need from the stockpile.
Garthdee Field is featured in the Press and Journal today in a feature written by Ellie House.
The feature is in the Your Life magazine included with the Saturday edition. If plotters have a copy they don’t want to keep, it would be great if spare copies could be dropped off at the Octagon so they can be passed on to our volunteers and other plotters.
