May Garden Tour 2020

The garden is benefiting with the extra time I've spent in it lately.

There's so much going on so I decided to do a quick (ish) walk around the garden to show you what I've got growing this year.

Lots of crops for seed saving hidden everywhere as well. I'm hopeful this should be my best year for saving seeds and crops for drying!

Elderflower Champagne

It's that time of year again when my hay fever is going crazy - It can only mean one thing - Time to make elderflower champagne!


Now it's not the elder flower that sets off my hay fever, but I always put the two things together in my head now!

Keeping The Old Mixer Going

 I posted a picture of this old mixer the other day and a builder friend of mine laughed at how dirty it was.

Yes, her best days might be behind her, but she's had a long hard life! 

Dad bought this about 30 years ago for £25 from a farm sale. It has done countless other jobs since then. It's main down side is it's not easy to move but otherwise it's a great bit of kit. I think it's been here for the last 7 years at least and used to do so many jobs.

Poultry Tour!

We have lots going on with the poultry on the smallholding at the moment. 


I've made some new pens, repaired old ones and seem somewhere near organised with it all so I thought I'd do a video showing you all round our birds and what we're planning to do.

Children In The Flowers

I love our paddock, part of me hates all the butter cups that grow there, but they do look so beautiful at the moment!

We're very lucky to live here and I have to pinch myself at times, especially during this lock down.
