Recently mown areas around the communal fruit trees at Gorge Road.

Neville has connected a hose to the orchard area so if you're at the garden for any duration, can you please connect up the hose and turn on the water while you're on site.

The gate has been left open and a baby rabbit has been spotted in the garden.

Please remember to close the inner gate every time that you come into the garden and if your vehicle is the last to leave, also close the gate to the road.

The last time we had a problem with a possum, someone brought in a Timms trap. Would that kind soul please bring it back again? :)

Annette on the SBS bank stand at the Lake Hayes A&P Show today. The weather held out for us after the heavy rain yesterday. A few showers came in mid afternoon but otherwise a glorious sunny day.

We shared the space with the Japanese Friendship Society here in Queenstown, one of the many community groups that the SBS Bank supports.

Katherine and Neville also helped out and Robin was there in spirit - nearly all of the herbs were grown and donated by her, together with some silverbeet and leeks from Annette and self sown bay tree seedlings from Adrian and Colin's garden.

Thanks alot Neville, you've been very busy:)

Will take some photos of the newly mown orchard area and paths and post them here.

Here's the photo of the compost bins and I send an email out to everyone gardening at Gorge Rd to remind them about keeping the paths clear etc.

For those gardeners are here on ooooby, please remember to put fresh material into the bin closest to the shed. As the material breaks down, Neville has been transferring it across to the bins towards the main gate.

The pile of material in front of the bins is ready to use.

Hi Megan, Showing Cherryle around the gardens will be easier now that we have mown pathways, I spent the afternoon there mowing grass around the fruit trees, and mowing pathways. Thanks to Robin for leaving the lawn mower. Can we please remind plot holders to keep the pathways around their plots free of rubbish. Organic rubbish (weeds and stuff ) should go in the compost bins provided, and inorganic rubbish should be removed by the plot holder. Thanks.

Might just do that Megan - Be nice to touch base. Thanks for the invite

welcome Cherryle. If you're coming over to the A&P show this Saturday, drop into the SBS stand where we'll have a table with a small selection of herbs for sale. More of a profile raising exercise. Happy to show you around our Gorge Rd garden anytime you're over this way, just email us harvestgardensqt at gmail dot com to let us know in advance.
