Sorry for the delay everyone but the 2013 Allotment Site winners can now be viewed on our Competitions page!
According to http://www.potatoday.org/ the 16th Hampshire Potato Day will be held on Sat 25 & Sun 26 January 2014 between 10am – 3pm.
Testbourne Community Centre, Micheldever Road, Whitchurch RG28 7JF
The 15th Potato Day was open for 2 days and they had 100 potato varieties available as individual tubers, 28 of which were also available as organically grown seed. Even though a difficult year in 2012. In 2013 all were priced at 17p per tuber (7 fro £1). And they had seeds and beans too. I saw them.
I have no connection with Hampshire Potato Day, just a satisfied customer.
Just to say in case you haven’t seen it (but hard to miss) we have had another delivery of high quality horse manure from Kiln Lane Stables.
Please help yourself – no doubt there will be more coming soon!
Best wishes Helen

I have a small stable yard in Crondall and have a supply of well rotted farm manure which i wonder if any Farnham Allotment holders would be interested in having?
There is vehicular access to the heap.
We do not fertilize the grazing and do not use wormers.
If this is of interest to you and you would like more information please contact me using the following details:

Our show is once again upon us and it certainly doesn’t seem like a year ago when we held our last one. I thought it might be helpful to you if you are intending to come down to outline the programme for the day.

Staging time from 8 am to 10.45 with Judging commencing at 11 am
The show will open to everyone at 1 p.m.

Your show is part of the Town Show organised by the Maltings. Enclosed you will find a schedule for the show which outlines the classes.
If you are able to enter the show please come and see me when you get there for a parking permit and also an exhibitor pass to get in to the Maltings.
If you are able to put something into the show please do support your show. We do have a small childrens section and would like to see more entries from the children.
We do also have other classes that asks for something you have made from the vegetables/fruit from your allotment that is edible. We also have classes for flowers from your allotment.
