As some of us missed out on our Hogwarts letters, we weren't able to apparate or head to our task by broomstick this evening, so a gentle jog was in order.

Our task this evening was to empty out the planters and re-home the veggies in some plant pots until a new home for the raised beds can be found.

Our team of budding Herbology students could have done with some help from Madame Sprout, as identifying what was weed and what was vegetable was a bit of a challenge. Hence the confusion between Hogs Weed and Hogwarts, inspiring the run report this evening.

Richard, under the careful supervision of Mini-GGer Alice appeared to have cast a Geminio charm, uncovering an ever-multiplying harvest of potatoes!

Katie and Sammy were on strawberry duty and were able to salvage most of the plants. I would guess the Sorting Hat would put these guys in Ravenclaw, they had to use a lot of smarts to ensure they were saving the right plants! Sammy also discovered Professor Moody's missing eye and one of Aragog's babies in the soil!

Laura and Dave were on litter picking duties, and were able to use the new extendable litter pickers to Accio litter! with a summoning spell.

Hagrid would have been mighty pleased with our groundskeeping skills this evening, well done everyone!
