Paying for your plot

You should by now have received a notice asking you to pay for your plot for the year beginning 1st October 2012.  If you want to keep your plot please pay as soon as possible, because we need to pay Norwiich City Council.  The final date for payment is 30th September; we can’t guarantee that will be able to have a plot if you haven’t paid by then.  Alternatively please let us know if you don’t want to continue.  We will then be able to offer your plot to someone else.


Good Food March

The Good Food March is coming to Norwich on Sunday.  The campaigners will be visiting our community allotment scheme, talking to growers and having a (good food) picnic.  They will arrive at 2.00 if you want to meet and eat with them.  Meanwhile you can check out their campaign at www.goodfoodmarch.eu/


Raspberries

Red Admiral on Raspberry

Autumn fruiting raspberries have been prolific this year, with plenty of rain earlier in the season to help swell the fruit.
They will continue to produce through October if there are no sharp frosts.
You may want to clear a space on your plot to plant some in the winter.
They are good for wildlilfe too, with honey bees especially liking their flowers.
