Popped up to see the Hugel Mound after a welcome drop of rain. We went up the night before to plant leek, carrot and borage. The squash, aubergine, runner beans and cucumbers are all thriving. We will keep a close eye on the mound as the rain falls. We may have to pin plants onto the mound and plant more to retain the earth. We are both thrilled by the possibilities opened up by the mound.
We had a visit back home from Ifor Griffiths and Chloe from Team 157. Lovely to see them both. Good luck on the Three Peaks challenge. Ifor gave us a lovely thank you letter – he puts it so well; ” Coed Panteg is a delightful environment providing team members with an ideal opportunity to experience what nature has to offer.One of the themes the Prince’s Trust is keen on highlighting and developing is E.S.D.G.C (Education for Sustainable development and Global Citizenship ). By engaging in such a community project, team 157 has covered all seven of the themes within E.S.D.G.C ”
