Paul- Plot 4:
You may of noticed that the central pathway is in need of repair after all those heavy tractors had churned it up. We started work on Saturday. It was pretty muddy after the snow and rain so we started by forking along each track to drain any excess water and also to loosen the ground. We then brushed a layer of sand in the holes. Pete Owen (plot 8a) kindly delivered some much needed top soil and grass turf for us to use. We will be filling in the biggest holes with this shortly.
Work carried on during Sunday. It was a beautiful day so it was really pleasant to work in the springlike weather. What made it more pleasant was that Fiona (plot 3) had dropped off a homemade, delicious Swiss Roll for us to share. It went down very nicely with a cup of tea. Thanks Fiona!
We are dodging the weather at this time of year so the work won't be done overnight. Please bear with us until it is finished and ready to look beautiful for the coming season. In the meantime, if you see any of us tolling away on the path, feel free to put the kettle on and make us a brew:-)
