WOW the sun has been out in full force,

North Devon is looking glorious. We have a full on watering regime to keep everything in the garden growing. Our swimming pool is 29 degrees! The lambs have grown into rough and tumble “lads” and the chicks are now 2 months old but we still have no idea how many will be hens and how many will be cocks! Our next renovation project is to raise the height of the roof in our end of the Long House so our bedroom and bathroom become much bigger. The Poly tunnel which we put up this year is wonderful and about to start supplying us with luscious tomatoes. Then with any luck, squash, corn, cucumber, peppers, chillies, basil and lettuce. A top tip is to pinch shower caps from any hotel visits as they make great propagators! Thanks to all my event colleagues from the Croatian Cruise this year we managed to collect nearly 30 and they are all being used!!! We have just had a wonderful weekend at North Morte Farm camp site with 10 other Marwood Families. Rockham Bay is a stunning beach and well worth the walk.
