|Our Christiania bike finally made it out of the|
basement to our land. I was using it the other
day to cart water and compost to the orchard
|You can see the wing feathers are appearing. This is their|
favourite pose - all huddled around the feed pot. I never
realised they could grow so fast, no wonder these could be
ready for the pot in as little as 8 weeks.
|Our asparagus has survived the winter.|
Unfortunately we have to wait until next year
before we try a spear or two and it won't be until
the following year when we get a proper harvest.
|Ian has been doing some more ploughing, this time with |
the two wheeled tractor. Takes longer but doesn't use so
much fuel and gentler on the land.
|We may have possibly lost our orchard, but|
this was the view on my coffee break one
cool day working in the greenhouse. Life
is still good!
|The first of what might be a series of stone|
pictures for a fellow blogger Diane, from
Digging in the Driftless. We were talking
about stone walls and how they are made.
So here is a Latvian example.
|I love patterns and this is the reflection of a|
net curtain we have hanging over the
doorway of our caravan to keep out insects.
I can't show you the swirling effect as it blew
about in the wind but it is quite mesmerising
|Still a lot of seedlings to pot on or out. Growing season is|
definitely under way.
|Ian has been doing a lot of sorting out of|
wood piles this week. This piece would look
great polished up but I think it will just end
up on the fire. We also need heat in winter.
