Mowing in the Mist

Wednesday, November 4th 2015

Today we have been continuing with tasks started previously, this morning we finished off burning the brash left over from yesterday. In the afternoon we continued to mow the meadow on the middle moor.

We will rake the cuttings off on another day as we want to encourage the wild flowers to grow.


While we were out, our local farmer came to collect his sheep that had been grazing an adjacent meadows of ours.  They help to keep the coarse grasses in check so the wildflowers have a better chance.  

We left these fine specimens of Fly Agaric to survive another day!
