Hunt the squash…

It’s time to harvest squash and apple crops at the farm!

The orchard had a tidy up this month as we scythed away long grass around the young trees to let our pickers through. The sheep have also been running around in there keeping the grass down.

The apple trees were all budded by Farmer Paul and are about 10 years old now. Varieites include various Laxtons, Spartan and Greensleeves.

And after safely storing away our harvest, how better to celebrate than with an apple and squash themed shared lunch? MMM. 🙂
