Progress in the Permaculture Gardens of Bealtaine Cottage

Permaculture gardens in April at Bealtaine Cottage

The storm rages on, as the weather is divided between weird and wonderful.

Sun, torrential rain, gale-force winds continue to ravage the North West of Ireland.

Sorrel is up in green clumps all over the gardens.

This is a tasty and nutritions herb and salad ingredient and also great for the famous French Sorrel soup!

Buds continue to thicken on the apple trees and there’s some early blossom about to open on the Redcurrants

The hens have settled in well and are laying eggs…that was much faster than I expected, so they must be happy!

Blossom is beginning to open on some of the Pear trees, despite the crazy weather and the temperatures remain quite high, even at night.

  1. Hi Colette, I can’t find your address anywhere on your WordPress page! Am I being stupid or am I looking in the wrong place? i know you’re in Sligo but I need to know where exactly before I come to your permaculture workshop in July. Cheers, Jane
