Back in the Spring I said to Kate that I wouldn’t complain if this year was a drought. With all the cobbing to do over the summer I was hoping it wouldn’t be the traditional English washout. So I’m probably one of the only farmers/gardeners you’ll find who is greatful for all this heat and dryness. We just about have enough water to keep the veg irrigated using soaker hoses under a thick layer of mulch and they are looking great. The fact that the grass isn’t growing just means less work.

We really need all the help we can get for cobbing over the next 10 days or so as I have to go back to work for August as our finances have reached rock bottom again. See my last post for cobbing days.

After the great success of our last Cob Party, we’ve decided to hold another on Saturday 4th of August. The cobbing will run from 2pm followed by pizza from our cob oven at 6pm. Please bring wellies and pizza toppings, and let us know if you can come. Feel free to pitch a tent if you want to stay over.
