We welcome a new member today:~) Today we went for a walk as it was such a good day and we were lacking in materials to work on allotment. We walked a bit of the "smugglers trail" which goes through Fullerton Woods, its a beautiful walk.

When the rain went off for a wee while I took the opportunity to walk round the woods to admire the bluebells. As you can see from the photographs it looks amazing.

Today, as it was a small group we decided to plant potatoes. Redskin, Fortyfold, and Shetland black, only heard of redskin so it will be good to see how the other varieties grow:~)
Good days work done today :~) Woo Hoo ( even though enthusiasm was lacking thin after tea by myself)

Nevertheless out with the spades and forks and back to the slog of digging the 2 allotment plots, what a task.
Towards the end of the session flying overhead was 4 buzzards :~) what a great moment, all paused for that moment.
Lots of wildlife about, including the common woodpecker which we all can hear but never see. Fullerton woods is a great site for all sorts of activities:~)

TASC Green Gym launched officially on 11 March 2009, the first in Scotland to be run by volunteers.Green gym sessions run on Wednesday 11am - 2pm a Fullerton Woods, Troon.
Launch day, weather a wee bit cloudy but we were enthusiastic. With the warm up exercises done we got down to the big task of digging over the soil.
Stopped for lunch and most important tea and cake, Fiona had made chocolate and beetroot cake it was so gooey and delicious, she also made carrot cake which I didnt get any( boo hoo) everybody said it was fabulous.
After lunch back to digging, (helps burn off the calories from the cake).
Ended the session will cool down exersises, great effort put in by everybody.
Many thanks for everyone who turned up
