Manure!

 We have identified a place near Chester where you will be able to pick up well-rotted manure free of charge! The manure is from sheep, alpaca and horse mixed with straw.

The only restriction is that you collect the manure on a Sunday only since the Farm is host to a number of dog training classes which generate considerable traffic.

The location is at Kennel Farm Ashwood Lane Wervin Chester CH2 4BX.

 

You will need to bring a trailer and/or bags in which to put the manure.

 

Please, when you have finished collecting the manure you require, leave the site as tidy as you found it.... the owner has very kindly made this material available and we would appreciate it if you respected her generosity.

Association agrees to arrange for self management of colony

At a meeting in March 2013 the Kingsway Allotment Association agreed to negotiate with Cheshire West and Chester Council to manage the allotment site on behalf of its members.

 

Once complete the Association will be responsible for all matters related to running the allotment colony, inclding allocation and monitoring of plots, collection of rents, supply of water, agreeing tenancies for new plotholders etc.

High rise at plot 2A

Start of project to grow carrots out of carrot fly range as I have not been able to grow them in the past.

Carrot tops are now starting to die back at the end of the season, already had approx 10lbs up to now with no carrot fly damage

Result!

End result after a fruitful season and still more to come, also grew rocket without flea Beatle damage which I have suffered from on the allotment in the past.

 

I also grew a good crop of spring onions very well without any white rot.

 

All in all very pleased with the overall results of this project.

 

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Steve plot 2a.
