We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

In the summer I took on the task of getting the hedges on the Whinnies Community Garden under control. They are traditional hawthorn hedges and had not been managed for years, possibly decades. You can seen in the photo above how two of the hedges had formed a tunnel.
And this is the hedges as they were a couple of weeks ago. Brought back down to size. The leaves have been eaten by the goats and the branches will be chopped soon for firewood.
