Surviving the Drought


During June last year we were having to spend time getting water to our newly planted fruit trees and all but one survived the drought. This year has been a different story with the wet weather causing considerable growth in the weeds and grasses. So it has been a case of strimming and weeding non-stop. We took part in Open Farm Sunday down at Goldsland Farm where we had a regular stream of children doing drawings, making daffodils and stick people, and decorating their work with stickers. An example of a rather fine Dragon is shown in the photo.

And congratulations to Abi Reader for being recognised in the latest honours list. A leaflet showing the locations of the orchards should be out during July. We shall soon be starting work on the new Pollinator Patch and the school are hoping to take part in the planning, planting and maintenance of the site
