An olive tree came up on Freecycle, when we got arrived there where actually two and about 2m tall including the pot, They only just fit in the van. For now they are an entrance feature.


Jamie has desided that it is summer and its bbq season, we have plenty of fallen branches, time to try to make charcoal.

These holes are now covered with soil, when we return we will see if we let it burn for the right amount of time before shutting the lid.
