A chilly day on the allotment


A chilly, windy day so a good day to have another bonfire and get some digging done to keep warm.

The Jostaberry was the latest fruit bush to be moved over to the new area. The carrots in the ground are now finished so that bed was weeded and dug over.

The last of the strawberry runners were planted out and the paths between the new raised beds levelled.

The last of the apples were picked and the last of the redcurrants.

The leaf heap is now building up as the Council do a regular delivery.

AND from The Bridgend Farmhouse project asking for your help  with with Aviva Community Fund.
