July 2020: Fruit and vegetable harvest
The fruit cage has encouraged our fruit bushes to produce a substantial quantity of raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, white currants, redcurrants, blueberries and rhubarb which have all been prepared for the freezer. The grape vines are heavy with grapes this year. We had our first harvest of chamomile which will be dried and stored for tea. Some drainage work was done from the camping field down to the house involving a lot of digging! Strimming continues of Himilayan Basalm which is an invasive weed.
