If you have been following our adventures you will know that we have moved house, leaving an extensive kitchen garden behind, and we are in the process of building a new garden to grow all our favourite fruit and vegetables. This new garden was completely overgrown and has needed a huge amount of hacking and clearing to open it up to sunlight. Thankfully we have had some great support from friends who have professional skills such as Hedgesandlawns gardener, Steve Dexter and his lovely wife Lynn. Our latest adventure was enlisting the help of our friend and man-mountain tree surgeon, Matt Moran. We just want to thank him and share the amazing sight of him bear hugging a mountain ash to the ground. We now have more sunlight, kindling and logs for our log burner as well as a photo-shoot to remember. Have a look, the photos speak for themselves:
Ok, so he gave it a little tickle first, but in the true tradition of a woodsman, he still had to “wrastle it down”. Thanks Big Man.
