Open Garden

 
  Finally Open Garden has begun. We opened to the public on Saturday, and had a bus load of visitors through on Tuesday. As always, it was wonderful to stop looking at the jobs that need doing, and just wander around and enjoy the garden with our guests.
The berries are on the move, and we’ve had to net these red currants already, as the birds are pecking the middles out of them.
  
After an enormous crop of apricots last year, I thought we’d have none this season, but the bees have been busy, and we have about 50 on the tree.
  I’ve put my pumpkins and potatoes under straw down near the chickens, and have used the netting in the picture to protect them from birds. 
So, just one day of opening to go. It will be a big one, with a sausage sizzle, and a choir singing at 2:30. Come along if you’re local and check out what we’ve been up to! This Sunday, October 25th, from 10 to 4.

Happy gardening everyone.
