Ed and Linda met SHP volunteer Chris at the allotment with the intention of finishing the weeding that was started on Wednesday but we found that one of the clients had already done a really good job on that bed.

Instead Ed chose to tend to the various compost heaps and repair one of the pallet areas, Chris pruned back one of the small walnut trees which was starting to over shadow the redcurrant bush and then collected windfall walnuts while Linda strimmed the grass back around the fruit trees then dug up a baby walnut tree which needed resiting as it had sprung up just 4cm from a pear tree.

The local squirrels took offence at us interfering with their nuts and started bombarding us with walnut husks so we took the hint, a quick tidy up and the walnuts safely stored in a tin in the shed and we beat a hasty retreat. 🐿
