If talks about Brexit are getting you down, perhaps you should get out more. Come on down to next weekend’s Plant Sale where talks about border controls will be confined to the delights of companion planting, and Brussels (and broccoli) will be sprouting rather than spouting. We still have various vegetables and tomatoes seeking a good home, and who knows what flowery delights will turn up on the day? Courgettes and beans have been the usual runaway sales items, but new recruits are being put through their paces in the poly tunnel, even as we speak. Once again, if you are finding yourself facing the painful experience of discarding excess seedlings, we might be able to find them a new owner.
Volunteer opportunities kick off at about 5pm on Friday, when the gazebo operatives will be swinging into action like a well-oiled machine. If you fancy throwing in your considered opinion as to which leg is supposed to go where, or, better still, throwing your weight behind the construction team – you we will be very welcome.
Sales commence at 9.30 Saturday , through to 2ish, and the whole shebang will be repeated on Sunday. Tea and cake will be available throughout, and you are bound to stumble across something that you didn’t know that you needed but now find that you can’t live without.
A massive THANK YOU to the volunteers who turned out last time, and to those kind members who also donated cakes. The first Plant Sale weekend was a great success, and we acknowledge that this is always very much a team effort. Unfortunately, a few faces will be missing from the team next weekend, so if you are able to spare an hour or two it could definitely make a difference. No experience necessary! Furthermore, donations of plants and/or cakes will be very gratefully received at any point during the hours of sales.
Visit the Plant Sale next weekend? Or you could just keep on listening to the news. And getting annoyed. Or gloomy. Or both, but probably more so. You could just Brexit proof your veg patch and don’t let the abysmal mess that the country appears to be in get you down!
