Happy Christmas and New year from all of us at Sedum Green Roof.

Well, seems as though life is going on and the world has not ended! We even had a little tipple to celebrate today at 11.11. We then wondered if it meant tonight!

Been very ill so no blog for a while.  Had pneumonia so not been up to much.  Recovered now though and all prepared for Christmas.  As I write the fields are lit up by our flashing Christmas lights!

All is well here on the farm.  Besides myself, everyone else has been fine and all is going well. Well if you can imagine the mud and the rain and the wind!  It has been horrendous.  Luckily our fields have not flooded although the Sedum is not as happy as it could be.  All is still in place and sitting out the winter.  Hopefully next year will not be quite so bad and we can have some growth in the spring!  The fields are looking good though and we have had no other problems. New polytunnel has gone up ready to get the new batch of SPods ready for January.  Matty and co have been very busy planting up.

Elsewhere on the farm all has been fine and although muddy we have not been flooded and the animals on the farm have been fine.  We have had a very interesting research project from some students on the land.  Evididently our land is very good for birds so we have had numerous students counting various species of birds.  Rather proud that we have such good conditions!

House is now finished but not the outside!  Carpets down and ready for the onslaught of the family who are descending on Christmas Eve.  I am actually quite excited this year for some reason.  I think we are all glad to see the back of 2012.  Lets hope that 2013 is a little more enjoyable.

Well no time now as have presents to wrap.  I hope you all have a wonderful time over the festive period and don’t forget to contact us in the New Year.  We will always be happy to help in anyway so do not hesitate to contact us.

Merry Christmas
