Ray and Carlton continue to work on re-furbishing the round-hose in the West Garden, thanks to the Armed Forces Covenant Fund. Rob (and Deb), 2 new volunteers also help out. The timber cladding is almost completed, and all the windows have been installed. When completed, the building will be used by learners from the supported learning department at Coleg Cambria; by volunteers from Ty Dewr; and by local interest groups such as the U3A and gardening groups.
Nick measured pumpkin 2 this morning, and estimated that it now weighed a healthy 160lb (or 352kg in metric!). Pumpkin 1 is a bit smaller at 100lb (or 220kg), but Nick is delighted in the results so far. He anticipates the biggest pumpkin will be ready to carve by Halloween….
Hadrian’s Wall Challenge.
Sheila and Ann completed their 25 mile walk along Hadrian’s wall last weekend. Here you can see both ‘trekkers’ by Robin Hood’s sycamore tree. The weather was fairly kind and not too cold for camping! Looks like we are in for a few days of strong winds and showers, but our harvest so far looks tempting!
