First seed in the ground

On a rather wet Friday morning last week we got the first seeds in the ground at the Twineworks at West Coker. Children from the primary school scattered the flax seed on the first of three lots to be sown there. It’s probably the first time it has been sown in the village for at least fifty years.

I was scheduled to get some flax sown at my allotment this week but was hailed off! I’m leaving it a few days until this unseasonal cold spell is over. You can sow well into May so if you do want seed then its not too late to get in touch.


Many thanks to Ross, Martin, Barbara, Marylin and Chris for helping to prepare the ground in the rain and Simon for the photos.
