Back into the root-ine
A lovely evening at the allotments. This task has been a firm favourite for a while, maybe due to the open space or the essence behind the task or maybe because we just like killing weeds!
We met at The King Wexham for the task brief, warm up and gentle run down to the allotments.
With Sandy joining us again after her little break it was great to run down the streets of Slough in the Red T's again in a larger group and back to our Monday night root-ine!
Matter of thyme
A short while later we were at the allotments and having the keys to lettuce selves in is so mulch easier these days.
So in a jiffy we had the tools out and were ready to turnover plots 1 and 2. We knew it would be a matter of thyme before the weeds came back! But the soil, albeit dry was relatively easy to turn over and made the task easier.
We hope that soon our lovely task owner will have some pre or post natal ladies to start sowing the seeds and helping the plants blossom.
Really? A Relay!
With proper attire this time by one member... naming no names! We decided to do a 100 meter relay as the first part of our fitness session.
To welcome our new participants we made them team leaders as Team A and Team B battled to win. I cant actually remember who won! Everyones a winner in my eyes (such a mum thing to say hahah!)
Put your best foot forward
As if the relay wasn't enough, we then did my round the world leg strengthening exercises! A few oo's and aah's means we were working those muscles... we then headed back up the road to our start point.
Thank you for coming along this evening! Next week we are meeting at Baylis Park for a task in Manor Park area.
