Sauerkraut Making – Sunday 17th
The Sundowner Sauerkraut making was good fun but not enough sauerkraut was made. And some missed out. If you want to have a go, come along on Sunday, 17th.
It’s Hot! Mulch your plot with the Lucerne mulch provided for you. Keep the water in and the sun off. Most important.
Many potted plants don’t last a week. We need some people to keep them damp. The committee is thinking about a pot watering roster. Also 10 trays were bought to help pots keep damp . Please put all pots on trays except those which don’t like wet feet.
Temporary shade. The committee is thinking about a temporary shade roof to be attached to the veranda. What do you think?
The Measured Irrigation is working well. It is putting on some 1,000 lt per day in this weather.
Perhaps we will celebrate the raising of the tap height at the Christmas Sundowner.
The summer Member General plot plan has been worked out. Kathy is putting the plan on a white board so we will all know. Speak to the plot manager if you are unsure what to do. Of course if you want to be really creative, get in line for your own plot.
The Cherry crop in total. We will be planting another cherry variety in the Autumn.
The trees are now protected. Thanks to all hands who put up the net. Birds can’t ruin the apricots as they did last year.
The apricots are wonderful at the moment. All members to take half a dozen.
Chooks in the Garden
The committee and the compost heap eagerly await chooks in the Community Garden.
However such a serious matter needs a great deal of thought and planning. A chook group willing to visit the chooks most days of the week will be necessary. If you are interested in being part of the chook group, contact me, email@example.com. Luke is very keen so we have two of us already. Another three will be necessary before we launch into production.
A defibrillator on hand?
Luke is looking into the Community Centre buying a defibrillator. They are very good for emergency cardiac problems. As they are expensive other Community Centre groups will need to come on board to share the cost.
Sausage Sizzle result
The wonderful number volunteering to help out at the Bunnings Barbeque on November 30th and their great work ethic made the Barbeque a smooth running concern. Thanks to you all, the workers and those who provided our backup. You did us proud, we demonstrated we were a true community.
And I know that this spirit will only increase. We took $690 before expenses and this keeps the garden ticking over very well.
Our next call for assistance is for the twilight market on 22nd December from 3.30 to 8 pm. Its great fun, food and sometimes great singers. If you can assist for an hour please let me know.
Missing tools. Keep your eyes open.
The Committee has debated changing the lock on the shed because things have gone missing. Lots of people have the current key. Also, the key is available outside for any member to access.
Please keep a look out and report suspicious activities. The options are to reduce access to the shed and garden or charge members for using fertilisers and other products etc. to cover costs.
What’s in the garden stays in the gardens. Woe betide your garden if compost leaves the Community Garden without Michael’s blessing.
