Up at the vineyard I continue to maintain the vines once a week but have taken on a couple of other projects up there too. I now volunteer for the newly formed market garden. The purpose of the market garden is to grow organic vegetables up at the farm and offer them as part of a box scheme later in the year. Last week I was sowing onions and runner beans as well as sunflowers and pot marigolds. I have already learnt tips that professional market gardeners use and hope to implement them for my home grown vegetables too.
Towards the end of last year and the beginning of this year too I was sad when a couple of things I had lined up to do didn't happen for various reasons one of which was bee keeping. Well, the chance to learn bee keeping has come up again so I didn't hesitate in putting myself forward to be part off the 'bee team'!
I think that is all I have to say for the time being. Cheerio for now!
