Tomorrow in the meadow

Leave a comment

Its a busy time of year trying to get all the winter tasks done before the birds start to nest. What with paths to repair,charcoal to be fired and pottery kilns to be dug as well its busy busy. Tomorrow we will be cutting back blackthorn from the foraging plantation and from the boundary then burning it off. We also have our members doing training with the old chainsaws, with a bit of luck we will have three new cutters and two members taking an advanced cause. A few years ago anyone could pick one of these bad babes up and cut away, not any more . Virtually everything we do requires training of one sort or another,in the case of chainsaws its good that everyone should be trained but no one can take a risk anymore there are no adults in this country with the capability of taking a risk ,we all have to be led by the hand and shown what to do.

Well thats my rant over we look forward to our scones at lunch,smelling of smoke and the lovely feeling that we are doing a good job.

See you tomorrow
