A new orchard

The Woodland Trust were generous enough to give us 16 fruit trees, apples, pears and greengages to start a new orchard on site. At short notice, a substantial area has been cleared and the trees dug in. Thanks to all those who were able to help out.

Now we just have to make sure the brambles are kept at bay and wait for the fruit.
