The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Earthworks - Day III

Four lorry loads of topsoil later - AND on a FREEZING cold day; Chris and Jim make countless journeys to and fro refilling the vegetable bed with 16 tonnes of premium topsoil

from the nice man at Stownhall.  Whilst this season's Arran Pilots are chitting happily in the tool shed; they could prove to be the world's most expensive 1st earlies this Spring!
Chris+3days÷2helpersx1roast.chicken.etc+(32tonnes of soil moved)+massive clean-up = job finished!!
