The last month has been very busy. Lots to harvest, then eat, cook, freeze, store, sell or give away!
We also decided to hire a scarifier for the grass. We have been here 10 years and the grass (you can not really call it a lawn) was a weedy field that we just started to mow!
It took the 2 of us about 4 full days to use the machine, rake up the debris and wheelbarrow it to selected areas beyond the walled garden to rot down. The collecting bag that came with it was full in about 2 metres and since we had nearly an acre to do it was easier and quicker to rake up. Do not think we will do it again for another 10 years!!
The colours in the garden are glowing nicely and by October there will be lots more colours of autumn.
There are also some plants that think it is spring again. The hosta are putting on new leaves, alpine strawberries not only in flower but ripened fruits and how about some apple blossom?
