Once again we were lucky with the weather and once again Jane and Dellores on the cake stall triumphed in selling a luscious variety of baked temptations – beetroot brownies, courgette and parmesan muffins, chocolate and mint cake, apple cake, spinach tart and more delights than you can shake a pea stick at.  They flew off the table, earning us £100!

Liz set up her rust-dyeing – and general natural dye guru – stall and gave a demonstration to the Edible Gardens tour of how to dye using rusty old things – and tea.



We had a steady stream of visitors and buyers of raffle tickets for our home-grown hamper.


Jan won the raffle.  It wasn’t fixed, honest.


Most exciting was that one of our frogs made an appearance for the visitors.
