Eats, shoots, leaves - this weekend!

No.  We’re not staging a grammar convention.

It’s our first PLANT SALE weekend!  Saturday and Sunday – 9.30am to 2.30pm

The contents of the poly tunnel and cold frames have yet to succumb to an attack of super slugs (at time of writing), and we will be starting the weekend well-stocked with fruit, veg and flowers - and slug pellets, compost and growbags.
Additionally, our tea-brewers are honing their teabag squeezing techniques (with apologies to the teapot brigade), and the cake crew are looking only a little battle-weary from much beating and sieving. Simple pleasures.
The pricker-outers and potter-uppers, on the other hand, are flopped in the corner like  damped-off seedlings, poor things.
Volunteers welcome.
The Plant Sale usually turns out to be a pretty hectic event for the regulars, and we will be truly grateful to anyone else who can offer any help.  If you can spare an hour or so we will be delighted to see you. JUST TURN UP!!!!
Friday evening – setting up from 4.30pm (probably until sun down)
Saturday – from 8.00am – labelling, serving, selling, carrying, brewing, advising (haha!) – until 2.30pm
Sunday – from 8.30 am – as above, plus some brow-mopping.
Additionally, donations will be welcome at any point during the weekend – surplus veg seedlings, plants and cakes.
The weather?  Well, who knows what to expect.  At the moment the forecast is for factor 50, but the skies are still leaden at the moment, and it’s still pretty chilly.  Flip-flops or wellies?  Better be on the safe side!  Thermals!
