This was quite possibly my favourite task of all time. Why? Here's a list

  • burning stuff
  • demolition
  • bashing things with a sledge hammer
  • wildlife (including a very unphotogenic rat)
  • power tools (electric saw)
  • treasure (marbles and a sling shot)
  • lovely people, all equally enthusiastic
  • very grateful people at the orchard
  • perfect weather

we hope to be back soon to do more burning... watch this space!

The rat was pretty cute, he just didn't like having his photo taken 🐀
