Share the love

The power of positive thinking perhaps slightly overruled the sensible side so we left the head torches at base when we set off to join Steph at the Eastwood Community Garden in South Woodford.

It looks like this was about the last evening we could get away with it, not in the least due to the lamp posts nearby... so mental note - its that time of the year to both keep an eye on the weather as well as check the batteries in the torches.

As per usual it was a mixed bag of walking & running to task as well as meeting on site, all in all 7 of us joining Steph to hunt for specific weeds to remove as well as keeping the paths clear of any plants encroaching.

Soon enough the large green bag was about full of bits & pieces removed, with some rubbish in a big bag as well. Time to pack up, tools were collected, bags dropped off at Stephs and off we went on our separate ways again.

P.S. kudos to Linda for rememberin the banner to highlight James' milestone of 300 tasks! give him a cheer
