A Week on the Estate: Runner-Bean Wine, Maps to Bacon Baps & Vain Chickens
As we roll into October, the weather has taken a decidedly autumnal turn since the last burst of summer warmth we enjoyed in mid-September. Winter is certainly coming and historic properties need to be well prepared. Repairs and maintenance of the front-porch roof and pillars of the Hall got underway this week.
On the land, there’s always plenty of work to do. Last week, while the sun shone, the third and final silage cut was rowed up ready for baling over at Brinkhill. This field will be brought back to arable cropping and sown with winter barley. This week, JSE Systems spread gypsum to help balance pH levels in the soil.
