Saturday 4th August

After a wet spring an early summer it has finally dried out sufficiently for volunteer labour to be realistic.

Cutting the meadow sown last autumn, in which the annuals have finished flowering was one priority.  Good strimming Hilary!

Another was to prepare the remainder of this end of the site for sowing this autumn.  Thanks to Chris for the stirling work with the rotavator!

Meanwhile the heavy team were making real progress with the hand excavation under the ash tree at the west end of the plot.
