Telegraph Hill Olive trees

It is certainly dry, this picture shows the direct result of irrigating the olive trees.  Nice green grass along the row!  A bit of a pain as we now need to mow under the trees only. 

We haven't cut the remainder of the lawns for a month, the only things growing are weeds and the grass along the rows.

To reduce the need for mowing Morag has planted comfrey in between some of the trees.  We hope this trial planting will grow and keep the weeds down, as well as looking nice.  Will bring you updates on that as it develops.
