As I write the wind wraps itself around our house like a wrestler , attempting to rob our very souls of the warmth of life . We will not give in . As in the Seventies Big Daddy never gave in to Giant Haystacks ,nor will we . We may fall , we may even take a hard knock or two but we will not be bowed . We will not give in . In this spirit , whenever possible outdoor planting has continued on our own or with that happy band of helpers , Cambridge Cropshare who , heads down , teeth gritted and facing the wind got stuck in and kept on planting til the planting was done . The windy Cambridgeshire Fens will not put up with wimps on her black fertile soil . Only the most country hardened stoic individuals are allowed to inhabit her hallowed earth and Cambridge Cropshare are of this elite breed . More broad beans need to be planted , potato land needs ploughing and onion sets need to be pressed in ,but these like the Labours of Hercules will be met with a conviction of ‘can do , will do’ and they will be done .
