We had a record 44 people on Sunday working away. Well, 42 worked, and one Trustee and friend walked around and inspected, but heyho. The sun shone, the potato bed got dug, the nursery bed got weeded, the big hole in the central axis that the water contractors made last summer and we have been waiting ever since to be filled got filled by the Duke of Edinburgh team. The maze layout - still only pegged out in string - was tested by willing small volunteers, marigold and allium seeds got sorted, geranium and parsley seedlings rescued. A good time was had by all.
