Fruit and drinks to start with
Much excitement today - visit of Border TV film crew. The weather wasn't on our side today unfortunately - heavy showers, sleet some of the time. But that didn't deter the hardy gardeners from outdoor tasks such as pulling up and clearing the old brassicas, sowing peas, digging up artichokes and picking herbs.

There was an interesting range of activities today, despite the rain, and some good shots for the TV camera crew.
After the garden session, the children and families were filmed as they made their way to the Methodist Hall for the cookery session. Looking forward to seeing this on the local Border news programme. At the cookery session, the children made pizzas: this involved making passata tomato sauce for the pizza, rolling out the dough, and decorating with jerusalem artichokes and herbs from the garden.
