Garden Notes – Get Sowing

Garden Club The Villager

Thank heavens for the dry weather coming in at the end of March. At last we could get out into our gardens. We need them for exercise and food. Of course lots of you have no veg patch but it will be useful if you can manage to grow something in the coming months, even if it is only in a tub. I worry that though we grow a lot of veg in this country there will be no-one to harvest it. We could have a reduced choice of fruit and veg. If so it will be sensible to grow what you can in your garden. ...

Farm Diary

The Villager

I said a big dry spell would come – well it took longer to arrive than we all hoped but it is dry now with plenty of sunshine – wonderful. The last 14 days have been very busy planting the fields that should have been planted last autumn and also those originally destined for spring cropping. Everything has gone really well with excellent seedbeds and few mechanical problems. Huge thanks to Rob who has worked many hours – something over 90 hours a week. The cereals are now planted with the 80 acres of spring beans to plant next week. ...
