Cleobury Open Gardens by Catherine Evans :: 08th August 2011

I spent a very enjoyable afternoon yesterday touring a selection of private gardens in and around Cleobury. They ranged from the absolutely stunning to the quirky, each one with something different to comment on and inspire. I came away with lots of ideas but not sure if any will come to fruition!

The harvest is a bit hit and miss at the moment – when the weather is fine nothing is dry enough or ripe enough to combine, as soon as it is – it starts to rain! All the malting barley has now been collected and hopefully will soon be made into delicious Hobson’s Ales, my favourite being Twisted Spire.

One of the cockerels went to a new home on Saturday – I hope the girls won’t miss him too much! There are 2 young cockerels amongst the chicks we hatched out at Easter and there are 3 more eggs due to hatch out any day now – fingers crossed they are all hens!
