The Northchurch litter picking team in………………… Northchurch









Lots of different coloured tomatoes for the harvest this week 9kg in total – they have loved the hot weather and are soooo sweet. There was also lots of chard and spinach for the veg boxes.








The sheep love eating apples so they have to be harvested carefully and kept an eye on.
