The 39.6 acres has a landscaping plan to make efficient use of the various contours, sunlight and existing habitat.
The fields to the west and south of the communal track have largely settled into young rough woodland, with the exception of two areas used for horticulture and as such is likely to be allowed to regenerate to woodland with little intervention. The plan below is the original and does not represent the present habitat.
This more detailed plan of the Leo fields shows less woodland, whilst the blobs in the white represent fruit trees.
The fields to the north and east of the track are still fairly open and more readily available for further horticulture. Using the triangle field, some 7 acres seems prudent to keep it from becoming a new woodland. The details of its use are laid out basically in the original landscaping plan, but personal use is a more difficult matter to settle. Most people would like to chose their place, but this would usually mean each person would chose the best location. Consequently the more preferred a place is the more likely it is to be kept a place for temporary use.
- June 23rd From 57.2506 End 59.4984
- May 23rd From 56.487.92to 57.2499
- May 16th From 54.387.81 to 56.487.92
First use this year. Little rain over the last month, although a sprinkling today, and none foreseen for the next week. Turned supply on around 8am. Watered, immediately, filled containers and watered again late afternoon. Will leave on overnight, despite the leakage and water again in the morning.
Here is a photo of the location of the meter, forth from the left, although there is another either side of the four shown but they are often not visible being closer to the traffic disturbance, followed by an image of the meter.
From 54.387,81 to 56.487,92 is 2.10011 m3 used though I expect half of that is leakage. Trying to edit a video and from that see the amount of water used over 1 minute for example.
As far as the meter reading goes, the digits before the decimal point are cubic meters and that is the figure used for billing. So in the image the 387 is 387 litres, the 81 is 810millilitres.
One revolution of the larger clock dial is 1 litre
June 15th 2015 A layer of reeds stooped the birds from eating the young seedlings as they did in 2013/14. So after 3 years I may have found a solution.
I seem to have two varieties a bald and a hairy. The bald is a shorter version.
