Dog day at the community garden

It just so happened that everyone who had dogs brought them to the food forest last Thursday morning. Pickle had a ball and slept soundly all afternoon! Amongst the dogs were also some workers. Its lovely the way people can come and go as they please. You just turn up any Thursday (and from next week there's an alternative day, Tuesday) and help out with whatever is going on. There is no obligation to keep coming or to sign up for anything. At 12 o'clock or so we sit on Liz's verandah and have tea, kindly made by Laura, and whatever anyone has brought to share to eat. There is no obligation to bring something but its amazing how every week a few delicious offerings turn up for us all to hoe into..... please excuse the pun :)

Bear is Pickle's favourite but despite her grand size and regal looks, she is so sweet with Pickle

Kim and Stuart were making frames for the raspberries and some beans
