Straw bales and sunshine

We've recently collected 260 straw bales from a farm in Muir of Ord which we'll be using as insulation for our new visitor centre. They are all stacked up in the growing house to keep them dry till we need them. We hope that this will be sometime over the winter, but construction is dependent on several issues such as when we get our building warrant and how busy our tradesmen are!

The weather at the moment is great - we've had several days of blue skies and sunshine, although the clear nights are cold and autumnal. The Keder growing house gets lovely and warm during the day, so we still have lots of tomatoes ripening. It's also ideal weather for harvesting some of our outdoor onions and Arran Victory tatties.
