Manchester Drive Forest Garden Project

The purpose of this blog is to document the development of the forest garden project that I have been setting up at Manchester Drive allotment site in Leigh on Sea, Essex, as well as any other random permacultural (or not) rambling thoughts that might happen to stray from my brain. I hope you enjoy it or better still, feel inspired to start your own edible food forest!

Great pictures Graham. You have got the raspberry canes in just in time. I planted the last of our fruit trees for this spring yesterday - two wee charries that were threatening to bloom. Still frosty here though....

I had some crows nesting in the cottage chimney up in remote Anglesey, North Wales (Cymru)...or trying to because I found out before they had chan ce to lay eggs...they were snapping off the newly planted raspberry canes for nesting material. They were incredibly determined to carry onm doing this even after a fire had been lit once that destroyed their work. they came back in a group eventually to try and break through the pyscik 'stay off' vibes. Actually its more than 'vibes'...its telepathy. I 'thought' them off (it can be like that in remote areas with no other humans around)..."not there fools!"
