"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught"
This weekend the garden group has been busy tidying up and slowly getting the garden ready for the Open Day (more later) and the National Garden Scheme Open days on July 19th and 20th.
The recent spell of warm weather has brought a lot of the plants on and they have made considerable growth. The vegetables in particular have made a lot of progress.
