Height Top Farm Holiday Cottages

I have got so behind with my blog that it's difficult to know where to start. We've done a lot of work on our new orchard and the trees seem to be doing quite well. We do have more work planned over the next few months and should start to see the benefits next summer. The vegetables have been better this year. We learnt not to plant everything at once. The greenhouse has been cleaned and is now acting as a drying room for the compressed paper logs. They are burning quite hot for at least two hours and all for free except a little effort. Adding a small amount essential oil gives a lovely scent when they are burning.
Kens little owl is dividing time between the trees and hedgrow and the polytunnel! It doesn't fly away when Ken goes in there.
We rescued our first hedgehog of the year from deep in the cattle grid set it in the field and away it went.
