Our maize – planted in March… doing so well – but see picture below 🙂
The track to our back gate cut and cleared – probably only have to do this twice more this year hahaha
20 Arum Lily corms potted up – these corms have a direct heritage of over 40 years, from Canterbury in Kent
The geese enjoying the shade – glad I didn’t clear these trees
First early potatoes doing very well – and very tasty too!
Cylindra beetroot – first cropping – lovely flavour and texture
Same maize field as top picture – after one night of massive storms, rain and wind – lost all but one row of maize!!
My first ever cabbage!
Sow and piglets enjoying the broken / torn maize stalks – no waste here!
HippoPig – our Jack relaxing in his second favourite position – his favourite is hidden in the undergrowth
What was the maize field cleared and ready to re-sow after the storm
A fine herb fennel plant – fine anti-tick/flea deterrent for the dogs and a lovely taste too
Black Oil Sunflowers doing well along the East edge of the paddock
Last of our mulching straw being delivered – this year we’ve taken 3.5 tonnes for mulching the orchard and fodder area later in the year.
Jack getting a nice cold shower from Jane
The new septic tank – – our original was flodded and “slipped” in the flood / storm
How precise is that! Inner lining of the new “traditional” septic tank.
