Harvesting the crops takes all hands on deck and the kids just love being out in the garden helping out.
Still on school holiday, they were eager to be a part of the actions when our gardeners started picking the maize crop which, thanks to the rains, has flourished.
Sue says: "We like to keep the children busy and occupied which can be anything from learning the multiplication tables to a spelling bee. I asked everyone to go into the garden this morning to help harvest the maize, they all went as happy as can be, we never have some that don't want to help or complain, they really are such a lovely family.
"So now at 10.30 the harvest is in, it is time for a well deserved cold drink and a snack!"
