First up a huge thank you to Victoria who said she'd open up PNK Garden within minutes of my message to the whatsapp group to say the task was cancelled! You saved the day and it meant we could still do good in the borough and still get in a longer run (I'm not sure how important that was to everyone but wouldn't want to disappoint on what was advertised...).

Instead of going up and over the hills, we had a more flat route to the PNK Garden. Although never will that stretch along the main road not feel incredibly long and it's actually not that long at all, like a quarter of the run!

There was plenty of tasks to get stuck into including weeding, digging soil to put in the raised beds, ripping up cardboard to also but in the raised beds and stapling insert word here (I've spent a good few min thinking of the word - the material to stop the weeds coming through).

Time always flies when we are at PNK Garden and it was soon time to be heading back to Glass Mill with our broccoli and chard - thank you!!

Next week we're heading to The Albany.

Who had to find a last minute task for everyone, and Victoria for opening up the PNK garden to provide a last minute task!
