Harvest 2015

A terrific year for gooseberries and currants – black, red and white.
Our first Mirabelle plums.

Most of our gages were taken by parakeets (we think) just as they ripened.

And a good year for pyramid orchids. At least 8 appeared among the long grass.

Pond

We still haven’t got a water supply for the pond and luckily the late summer rain came just in time before we had to top it up with tap water.

The pond vegetation is doing well: water crowfoot, broad-leaved pond weed, water forget-me-not, purple loosestrife, willow herb, water buttercup and flags.

No sign of our newts.
