Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

I want to go to Lynford Arboretum near Thetford Forest as I want to find out about their composting methods. I'm thinking about going on October 5th so that I can meet the Thetford Forest Volunteers who run the place, to pick their brains when they have their tea break at 10.30 a.m. If anyone wants to meet up there, just let me know.

There are other Sundays I could go instead.

Perhaps roasting them would bring out the sweetness.

I'd forgotten that Dove. It does make for very interesting shapes.
