The boys have been hand strawing the strawberry fields to protect the tasty berries as they grow. All we need now is some lovely rain and some warm weather and they should be ready around mid June.

The strawberries have all been given a lovely layer of straw to nestle in - all we need now is a nice steady rain and plenty of sunshine and they will soon be ready to pick

Been having a word with the apple trees in the orchard to make sure they put on a good display for the blossom walk on 25th April. They promise to do their best!
