Over a mug of coffee and a lovely slice of homemade fruit cake, Jane Merrett told me she hopes the cafe will open every Sunday from now on, weather permitting.
After a chat at the Trading Hut with a new applicant for a plot (we now have a waiting list for plots!) I went down to my own plot and planted the strawberry plants that arrived in the post yesterday. I have a dozen 'Honeoye', a early season strawberry with an Award of Garden Merit (AGM), and a dozen 'Hapil', another AGM variety well suited to dry sandy soil like ours.
I was going to finish off digging the 'Roots' bed but after being called to inspect where a load of horse litter had been dumped half on the track, it started to rain in earnest so I packed up and went home.
Digging and muck raking next time, unless someone else is kind enough to remove the horse litter from the track!
