MCC Gardening Group - it's HOT out there!

Yesterday the gardening group gathered at it's new start-time of 8pm for its regular Sunday evening gardening activities, now restricted because of the heat mainly to watering and weeding, although the hardy gardeners seemingly can't resist getting into moving rocks as well, or even trying to dig holes for new plants in the now near rock-hard soil!

These notes are based on information supplied by Alan Buck, who also sent me the photographs.

Here's what Alan wrote about the evening's work:




"Crazy Gardeners"

These crazy gardeners just cannot give up. They said that they were going to concentrate just on tending the plants , watering weeding etc. until the cooler nights came in September. It was too hot to do any heavy work.

When Rosie and I arrived, after collecting a few rocks, to help with the edging etc. there they were digging holes for more plants, moving stones and rocks and removing arkward weeds. These are really dedicated people and want to see improvements to MCC. I do hope that more people get involved, especially with the watering - just to get the plants established.

"All volunteers most welcome - please come along!"
Same time, same place next week
Sunday 28th June at 8pm!

(Our current locations for watering and weeding - roundabouts near restaurant at the top of the open ground between Manzanas 19 & 20 and the open space opposite Manzana 28, between Manzanas 31 & 33)
