Beef & Bikes, Barley & Peas, New Paint & Old Trees
August has been a busy and a bountiful time for all of us at the South Ormsby Estate. As summer begins to fade, the garden is giving us much produce in the shape of tomatoes, potatoes, onions and carrots. In the fields, the harvest is in full swing, with the barley, peas and oil-seed rape already harvested and the wheat waiting its turn. Elsewhere on the estate, some key projects are also bearing fruit.
We’ve seen the estate’s beautiful metal fences repaired and re-painted smartly in black, ensuring they’ll give us many more years of service. The painters have also finished both the insides and outsides of the north, east and south windows. As many of their frames are rotting away, the western windows will need painstaking preparation before the painters can finish their task.
