Once a month the team at Petalon Flowers down tools at their Cornish flower farm for a few hours, lay a long table, and sit down to enjoy a special lunch together and each other’s company. Outside, if at all possible. This month Rupert cooked for them, and they set their table out under a tree at the top of one of their flower fields. Vases of flowers grown in those very fields were spread along the table (several planks screwed together and set on six fence posts hammered into the ground), and Rupert served a vegan feast prepared on a barbecue and the tailgate of the Philleigh Way truck.
