Whilst there is a small fenced Veg. plot, the Garden shown here is nearly 7 acres of heaven. 5 fields with fences and gates, four used as rough and rented grazing, one for hay or silage each year. But there are many small compartments for trees. None older than 19 years and most coming on well - it's a long process here.
The key to anything Garden in Orkney is shelter and that's where my dream began in 2001 - making shelter, using mostly willow cuttings, but they have now outlived their purpose, so I am taking out these scraggy and ill-tempered sallows.
