Jim and Christine are heading to Lower Loxley for the gardening festival, hoping to pick up some tips. Jim is enthusiastic about everything on offer, and encourages Christine to invest in her garden before it's opened to the public.
Eddie convinces Clarrie to take Jake and Mia to Lower Loxley so Will and Nic can spend some time together. Will and Nic decide to go for a walk and then dismantle the scarecrows while the kids aren't around. They also plan a picnic with George for Wednesday.
Blaming herself, Clarrie isn't coping very well in the wake of the E coli outbreak. Eddie hides the Westbury Courier from her so she can't read an unpleasant article about Bridge Farm. However, at Lower Loxley, Christine unwittingly asks an awkward Clarrie about it, and comments on how hard everything must be for Pat and Tony. Clarrie then asks Eddie why he didn't tell her about the Courier article, and explains that she thinks she should resign from the dairy. Eddie is alarmed, since they couldn't survive without her wages. He convinces Clarrie that Pat and Tony would have sacked her already if that was what they wanted.
