A gorgeous bright but very chilly morning for our return to a favourite hidden corner of Tolworth at the Edible Forest. And great to have Di rejoin GoodGym Kingston.

We were welcomed back by Brian and Ben of the Edible Forest with a mini tour to see the fruits of our labour last year - some successful grafting but still waiting for our tree seeds to show!

We got to work helping plough and plant up a blackcurrant maze. The small saplings we planted should take 12-24 mths to start growing into a hedge like maze and produce fruit.

They say patience is a virtue but even by summer they should grow by about a foot so we look forward to seeing them sprout.

Thanks to Brian and Ben and well done everyone - Rob, Kate, Di and Jane
