Lick and a Promise | My Shetland

Lick and a Promise | My Shetland

I was in a rush this morning, so everyone got a bit of a lick and a promise, while breakfast was dished out and paddocks mucked out.

I was off to Turrifield to do seed planting all morning.

After sewing tiny lettuce seeds and then massive runner beans, I was given a tour to see the results of my previous planting work.

It is very satisfying and I kept saying to myself “I did this”, as well as many other folk who volunteer too.

And then there was the fruit tree polytunnel, where the trees have been cleverly grown into an espalier (a tree trained flat against a support with several tiers of branches).  I want to learn how to do this very much. It is an ancient art. 


I’m still keen on the polytunnel idea but I am beginning to realise that it is a lot of work and time is something I don’t have at the moment so mine would be full of weeds and badly neglected.
