Tree Planting Continues...

We planted more apple trees at Houghton this week: Red Devil and Scotch Bridget to add to the Rajka, Discovery, Red Topaz and Keswick Codling we planted last week. We need to check if storm Georgina left any of them standing. This is our latest investment in home grown organic produce which we hope will begin to bear fruit in two or three years time.

Tree Planting

Icy wind and rain did not stop us planting the first of our new apple trees at our Gosling Sike orchard in Houghton yesterday. On a layout more like a traditional orchard than the modern post and wire system we have there already, we planted more Discovery, Rajka, Topaz and Keswick Codling all on M106 rootstocks.

Chervil adds a delicate aniseed flavour to lots of dishes such as sautéed mushrooms, garden peas with butter, or celeriac and potato mash.

Big New Project

As we enter our fifteenth year of organic growing at Low Luckens we thought we would give you a preview of our exciting plans for the future. After years of renting one field, our move to Low Luckens in 2015 has greatly increased the land we can now use to grow organic fruit and vegetables. Having extended the polytunnel area, our new challenge is to convert a big field into an organic orchard with a difference. Our aim is not just to grow apples for juicing but to do so in a highly diverse ecosystem of useful trees, shrubs, perennials and annual crops using techniques that set out to care for wildlife (while deterring the pests!). The system we have developed over the years is not just orga
