Today was our last volunteer day this season. Thanks so much to all of you who have helped out this year, it’s been really good fun and so much work has been done. We really really appreciate all the hard work put in by volunteers and we enjoy the company too. It’s a relief to be able to share the produce rather than having to sell it.

We will have a few work days over the winter, but they’ll be rather impromptu and will depend on the weather. Please keep a look out on the blog for news of these.

We want to especially thank Tim, who arrived at Midsummer and has worked incredibly hard for us. His skills, knowledge, enthusiasm and strong work ethic have been a huge help. Without his efforts things would’ve been extremely difficult and we would never have got to where we have. Tim will be leaving us in the next few weeks to return to Pentiddy to help with the coppicing over the Winter. We hope he’ll come back again one day soon!

Our baby will be arriving soon, he’s due on the 22nd of December, so Kate is busy preparing for that, while I am now needing to work full time hedgelaying, dry stone walling and gate making.

We wish you all a warm and cosy Wintertime.
