Croft7 April - September 2013

.  We have had a good egg production from our ducks, hens, geese this season but the hens became less viable with the changing weather patterns. We have five goslings and some new hens and a cockerel. We have continued to build up the fertility of our raised beds and have had a reasonable salad leaf, herb and potato harvest and have some leaves to continue through the winter months into next spring.

   We had a workshop visit from participants in a Growing Food in Woodlands workshop and seminar which Croft7 organised and hosted for the Community Woodland Association.
