Mega Veg Patch Plans


Happy Mail!! I love receiving fun stuff in the post so I was pretty happy yesterday to receive my order of seeds from Sarah Raven. We've started to get the garden (read 5 hectares of land) sorted bit by bit. We've started clearing undergrowth, pulling down dead trees, and have decided to move the chickens to a new spot where they'll be fenced in. We love our chickens being free range but having lost another three this week to hunting dogs something had to be done. We were pretty pleased with ourselves to bag a free greenhouse which we picked up at the weekend and we will clean and attempt to put that back together before the end of the week. We've found a whole bunch of wooden beams in the barn which we're hoping will be good enough to form the basis of our veg patch which at the moment looks like this...


...but I'm truly hoping by midsummer it will be a thriving veg and flower patch where our guests will be able to pick their own food for their breakfast/lunch/dinner and we'll be preserving our way into autumn and winter.


Speaking of guests...have you seen our new website? We launched our 'Wild Oak Wood' Bell Tent Camping business this week and have already had lots of positive feedback about our new site. We're looking forward to getting our tents in February when we'll have a go putting them up and get some pictures taken so you know exactly what we'll be offering. Let us know what you think!
