Gathering the Harvest

Over the weekend, I spent some time in the countryside and enjoyed walking amongst fields of golden barley.

The heavy rains in the last week have stopped farmers from cutting crops that are ripe. It is a demanding, difficult situation facing farmers at the moment due to the highest rainfall on record in August.

Today, I was glad to hear about various harvest events taking place in Glasgow. It is great to bring gardeners and their communities together to share the fruit and vegetables produced this year. Go along and get involved in local garden projects.
