Yesterday I decamped from my own garden to spend a day with my friend Sue Harper at her organic flower field. Her and her husband Pete work so hard to get the flowers and the field looking fantastic and beautiful it was great to spend a day there just barrowing mushroom compost around, weeding, watering and doing general sorting. Pete planted a hedgerow a few years back and now its mature and thriving, full of birds and insects. It provides great shelter too, helping to stop wind damage, so being there for a day is a wonderful experience. Pete and Sue aren’t on the Willing Workers on Organic Farm scheme but it reminded me of my days helping people farm their plots of land the odd weekend.
