Most of our carrots seem to be ready and we’re picking them as we need them at the moment…stacking in time!!! Nina has been busy foraging hazels, crab apples and blackberries from around The Patch and has made some delicious jam that I’m sure we will eat into the winter! The green roof has taken well and we are keen to get it finished now. We’re now on the hunt for plenty of cardboard and organic mulch for the fruit tree’s in the food forest. We will be creating a guild around each tree with a large area of cardboard covered in some well rottened poo and straw mulch or 18 day compost if we can get some made up soon. We will then plant some fruit, herbaceous perennials and other supporting plants. This will create small islands within the food forest that in time will be expanded to form a large and balanced eco-system.
