We were out in the orchard tonight, there was hardly any breeze and what a beautiful sunset. G started sowing the herbal ley.
On the weekend he mowed the remaining grass and then I raked and dumped the clippings onto the hedge border. We estimate the orchard is about 1/2 acre in size. We might need to get some more seeds to cover it because what looked like a lot to start with probably isn't enough after all. Mustard and lupins are the predominant plants.
