Mowing and weeding continue to make up the bulk of our workload at the moment, this warm, wet weather making ideal growing conditions for them. If we can get on top of them now they will be less of an issue later in the season. The newly planted beds in the long walk have settled in nicely and are benefiting from the rain we have been having.
In the kitchen garden the broad beans and tomatoes are now romping away, all the soft fruit is budding up nicely, we just need a prolonged sunny spell to fatten up the strawberries. Newly planted crops include parsley, ruby chard, golden beetroot, purple sprouting broccoli and climbing French beans.
An afternoon spent getting to know each other
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
