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

More snow

No gardening today!  Poor Chris is ill in bed and we have had a second fall of snow.  It really isn't very much here - less than an inch.  Time for lighting fires and wrapping presents!  What a good job Al & Chris placed the reed insulation jacket around the pump in good time this year.

Comments from the coop:
  • Egg production still good.
  • Hennery insulation means they have a snug and dry area out of the snow.
  • Snow means no freedom, no grazing & also no raking up after all their scratching.  Bonus!
