November 30 is fast approaching, and according to the Ladner Community Garden Terms and Conditions #1
Allotment holder agrees to have his/her allotment harvested and tidied( removal of dead plant material) by November 30, 2012 unless actively growing winter crops.
If allotment holder is unable to meet these terms and conditions for any reason, please notify the Ladner Community Garden Society or the administrators.
Please remove your stakes and take them home to store till next season, it gets very windy at the garden and today I found several compost lids further down the garden.
The garden is very slick under foot, so please watch your step.
The compost bins still have room in them especially the ones on the west side of the garden, when adding your plant material add some leaves( brown material) on top, you will find these in the grey containers at each end of the composts.
For those not returning please let myself or any other board members know and please have your plot cleaned up by November 30.
The water has been turned off by the city till next season. If using tools from the shed please ensure that the dirt has been cleaned off , we will leave a towel in the shed to clean them. The lock has been difficult to open lately, we are planning on cutting it off and putting a new one on soon.
We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank everyone for attending the Christmas social on November 10, we had a great time and the array of food was yummy and most went away with a prize.
