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

Looks like a Pagan fertility rite!

After removing and replacing 16 tons of soil; it was only fitting to have the Casting of the Soil Ceremony now that the vegetable plot is all planted and things are actually growing.  Not that we needed an excuse for a G &T!  The soil casting was the original sample supplied by David Marsh of Stownhall 
We're now hoping for bumper crops!
