23rd June ~ First Workday!

On 23rd of June ( time is moving so fast ) we had our first work day on the farm.
We had been predicted rain for the two days preceding the workday but the ground stayed firm enough to allow cars on and off the site so the day went ahead. We even had sunshine in the morning!

The task was planting Brassicas including January King, Savoy and red and white Cabbage, Curly, Red Russian and Cavolo Nero Kale.

All ages mucked in...,
 ..and a good time seemed to be had by all.

 We had a bring and share tea break where much cake was eaten. Sadly I was too busy stuffing my face with the glorious cake to take any photos of this but it did happen I promise!
The children ( both mine and visiting work day ones) had a great time making dens and paths in the remaining barley. The ages varied hugely and yet all got on extremely well.
If the next one is half to pleasant it will be wonderful.
