Last Saturday may have been my favourite volunteer day at Occombe farm yet. We planted the beginning of a really cool forest garden.
plum tree in slightly more rocky ground.
After all the holes had been made it was time to fill them. A mixture of Occombe's lovely moisture retaining clay and some compost back filled the hole and a delicate little tree slipped in, staked up and protected from ferocious rabbits. This one right here I want to claim. It's my medlar.
Then it was time for lunch and unfortunately we had to turn home. I had one of those conversations with Stephen, you know, the one that goes like this.
Her: You're not well are you?
Him: I'm totally and completely well. Honest, really. Well now that you mention it I have a slight headache and I feel really dizzy, but only when I stand up.
