The Beehive

Green woodpeckers have been attacking the beehive. I made the mistake of wrapping the wire netting too tight around the hive and they were able to cling onto the netting and reach the hive with their beaks. Luckily I noticed in time.

Permablitz Day 11th February 2017

Terrific day with a record 24 enthusiastic people working in the cold and snow. We planted a Discovery apple (for Hackney Quest), planted all of last year’s cuttings – gooseberries, blackcurrants, sage and rosemary, replanted blackberries (Oregon Thornless, Helen and Adrienne) and mulched with wood chips.

Photo. Our beautiful deer, standing guard over our forest garden. Made from woven willow by Martin Brockman at our first Shoreham Midsummer Festival 2013. Sadly no longer, he fell soon after this photo was taken, his legs, many times reinforced, finally gave up.
