So nice to be invited to help maintain this withy bed. Luckily, I remembered to take my scythe. The amount of growth since March was astounding. Both willow and weeds had really responded to the pruning and weeding we had done previously. I discovered that different varieties of willow grow at different rates, so we made sure the less hardy variety were well tended. Looking forward to seeing results when we go to crop in December.
Lovely sunlight on the willow as I work in the shade, the heat is drying out the material so fast….really having to work quickly!
Our group enjoyed making some bird feeders from the leftover willow from the school’s workshops
