This magnificent pumpkin is the first to be harvested. There is a bit of special significance to pumpkins as Kamil used one of his own as a prop at the Southend Soup last October  where the allotment was the successful winner of the funds. Now we have one grown on the plot and we are in need of funds again.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA  We have started doing the pathways with this lovely donated shingle and it looks fantastic but we need to buy some more to finish it off.

This is where you come in Dear Reader….

We are going to auction off this pumpkin to fund more shingle so please dig deep, I know we have lots of supporters and well-wishers and this is your chance to make a contribution.

The Auction will run until Friday 08/08/14 12pm so there is plenty of time to get your bids in. It will be run on Facebook as well  and I will monitor bids and update on each site.

If you are the successful bidder we will be at the site next Saturday if you would like to visit and pick up your pumpkin, other wise we can arrange to deliver it.

We had a welcome visitor today. Jonathan Barker is from a fellow LAND learner site, Maypole Forest Garden, a 6 acre site near Maldon. There are some lovely photos on Flicker …

He worked very hard and gave us lots of useful advice. I feel reassured we did the right thing planting the fruit trees. Thank you Jonathan.

Thank you to Bosco for the grape-vine, it already looks at home
