This is the time for planting, so we have been busy.
We wanted to grow something nice to eat, but decided that veggies might take up a bit too much time – but fruit on the other hand…
So, I have chosen every kind of soft fruit and planted two of each kind – blackberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, gooseberries, rhubarb, loganberries, raspberries – I think that’s the lot. So – summer pudding, possibly? Followed by a nice fruit crumble? I know I have to watch out for the birds though… but as you can see, I have my trusty Scottish helper to protect my fruit farm for all comers!
The next lot of planting was harder work – so Al volunteered (!). He has planted twenty laurel hedging plants to create a nice boundary for the campsite pitches – they are already looking quite smart.
