Watering your plot
Ground water levels are low. I got a leaflet from the Affinity Water company yesterday about the rainfall over the winter being too low to fully replenish the groundwater resources.
Here is a quote from the leaflet:
“Hang up your hose: A garden hose uses as much water in an hour as the average family of 4 uses in a day and a half – try to use a watering can instead.”
So, remember to stick to the allotment rules:
- No sprinklers allowed
- Hose to be held during watering (not left on ground in the strawberry patch with tap turned on while you get on with a bit of weeding round the peas )
- Choose the watering can over the hose whenever you can
2016 show – some photos
First annual show at Stockingstone
The first annual show and open day at Stockingstone allotments took place on Saturday 10 September 2016. We were unlucky with the weather, lots of rain and some high winds that blew some entries off the tables, but the marquees stod firm and we all had a good time with tea and cakes as well as a raffle.
