Seedy Sunday - report

A hardy Seedy Sunday team, Ruth, David and I braved a bitterly cold but sunny morning outside the Seed Store. On offer were donated seeds plus coppiced hazel beanpoles and peasticks cut by Andrew Saunders. Among conversation topics were advice on seed varieties, viability testing and how to keep warm in near arctic temperatures! A wormery was donated for offers, full of prolific worms and worm juice. In the Café Carol deployed her powers of persuasion to enlist names for the Autumn Social pumpkin and sunflower competitions, and flagged up this year’s family Scarecrow competition – never too early to get thinking about entries!

We raised a very respectable £112.93 net for an hour’s work and the Café also did good trade, with a selection of delicious home baked cakes and much appreciated hot drinks, as usual!

Thanks to everyone who helped out on the day and to Janet and Flora for seedy sorting!
