Well it’s been a pretty wild week end with the weather, thank goodness that has now passed and we are back getting some sunny spells.
Yesterday we headed down to Pendine Sands with the dogs, to blow some cobwebs away
Yes it was very blowy but nice to get some sea air and a change of scenery, everything was closed and there was no one around very much a ghost town.
I had harvested the last of the apples last week off all our young trees, so three crates later all mixed up we decided to have a go at doing some cider with them
We have never done cider before, I don’t drink the stuff, I am not even sure that it should be that colour, thank goodness we are only doing a gallon, if anything it can get used for cooking I suppose.
I have got a sourdough starter on the go
It’s now been going almost a week and I haven’t managed to kill it yet, It’s the one from Paul Hollywood’s book Bread.
I have been busy prepping the poly tunnels for winterpoly tunnel 1 has been cleared out and Some reflective insulation has been put up on the lower part of the tunnelfirst time trying this.
All the beds have been mulched in a deep layer of Alpaca poo, one side has been covered over as it won’t be used this winter, I have small beds of some veg on the go, and bringing on more plants that will be planted out in a few weeks, pots of tender plants have been brought in to over winter, and the early strawberries have all been brought in. Grapes pruned back and the tunnel has been washed down inside and out. Now I have just have to get poly tunnel 2 done, I have made a start on clearing and cutting back.Work so far
Right spit spot work to do.
