February 2011

Winners of the Draw:  On February 5th we picked the winning tickets for our Hamper Draw out of a hat (well, not actually a hat!).  First prize of a €200 hamper went to Barry Robinson, 2nd prize of a €100 hamper goes to Donal McGrath, third prize of a €75 hamper to Stanislav Kossatchev. Congratulations to all.

Work in the New Field:  This month we do the first task in our new 3 acre field - planting the boundary hedge. We are putting in a hedge of Hawthorn and Alder, which will act as a good barrier and in a few short years will also provide useful shelter for the new fruit trees which we will grow in the field.  At the moment there is a crop of winter barley there, and after that is harvested in July we hope to start preparing the ground for the Autumn planting.
