It’s early evening and one of the workers has accidentally damaged a polytunnel. Pawel offers to help Adam repair it. As they work, Pawel reveals more of his views on farming. He suggests that Adam could set up a marketing co-op. With a different policy in place, Pawel believes there could be all kinds of opportunities on the farm. Adam thinks his opportunities are currently dwindling, rather than growing. Pawel perceptively suggests this is because Adam is a manager who isn’t allowed to manage. When Adam asks what he would do in his position, Pawel says he would move on.
At Willow Cottage, Vicky tries on a new dress for Mike and Brenda, but their reactions aren’t quite what she expects. Brenda says it’s too short for a woman her age and Mike thinks Vicky’s gold dress is more flattering. Mike then realises that the dress he had in mind belonged to his ex-wife, Betty. Oops.
As Mike looks forward to going on a course tomorrow, Vicky is rather out of sorts and upset about aging. Mike doesn’t know how to comfort her, so she turns to Lynda for some womanly advice.
