Beelarong Open Day set for March 10th is cancelled

Bet you thought I’d fallen off the end of the world.

In truth there has been very little to write about down at the allotment. I covered it with mulch through the heat of the summer months and, apart from my sweet potatoes, let it lie fallow. I was looking forward to getting on with planting in March but we have had so much rain recently that the earth is sodden.

Which brings me to the reason for this post.  A few weeks ago I announced the open day at Beelarong Community Farm where I have my allotment. It was planned for this coming Sunday, March 10th.

Unfortunately it has been cancelled due to the weather and the state of the ground. As gardeners we welcome the rain, we garden in the rain, we love the rain.  But we don’t really want to squelch our way through mud on what should be a fun day.

So when the new date is set a little later in the year I will let you know.

Looking on the bright side – with the ground so wet the weeds just pop out when you give them a little tug.

Happy gardening (eventually!)

    Jean it’s so nice to have you back posting again! I was just getting around to emailing you to say that I can’t make it on March 10 as it’s the same day as my stepdaughter’s hen’s morning tea. But I won’t miss the open day after all…unless it is in May when I’m over in NZ for said DsD’s wedding! lol

    No rain here and everything is dry and crispy :(. So glad that you are doing well, I figured you were on holiday somewhere :). At least you have rain! I guess we will get it SOME day…:)

    We are loving the rain here, too. I have optimistically planted seedlings in a raised bed so hope there is enough drainage. They doubled in size in a week so off to a flying start.

    I was not going to be able to make it a March 10th but will keep an eye out for the new date.

      Hello Fairy. Lovely to hear from you. Shame we had to cancel open day but no point in going ahead in the present climate. Squelch Squelch.
      Good luck with your seedlings. Sure they will thrive with the rain and the raised bed drainage.
