Blank


Some days my mind is a blank....today is one of those days. 

 Jason has returned to his hometown - Preston, after a few days here, there are lots of pottering jobs to be done on the farm, but first I am going to check my Farmers Market stock as I have one on Sunday morning in our village hall.

No news is good news they say.....sometimes I tend to agree!!

  1. I just discovered your blog recently and it makes me so homesick for the country! I live just outside the capital of our state here in North Carolina (USA) and I work in the capital city (Raleigh). I was raised on a farm and have lived most of my adult life in the country/on a farm. We have saying: "you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl" - Sue, if I lived close I would be glad to come and help you with those never ending little things that always need to be done on a farm! It's nice to be able to reach across to you from a blog but it would be even better if I could pull on my waders (wellies to you probably), tie one my apron and roll up my sleeves and pitch in to help!!
    There is a joy that you get from farm living that just can't be put into words!

    Love your blog!!

  4. I sell handmade soaps, handmade cards, lavender and all it's associated products, worm tea and, if we have any spare, free range eggs.

    All made and produced by our own fair hands.... well the chickens lay the eggs and the worms provide the tea!!

  5. Lovely! I have two worm compost bins - one in a dustbin and one in a wiggly wigglers tiered system. This was a birthday present many years ago and one leg has now come off and it sits propped up on bricks. The worms don't mind that their home wouldn't qualify for an Ideal Homes prize and happily chomp their way through their dinner regardless. I never thought of selling the liquid though.

  6. Well there was only so much of it I could use for my veggies, so it made sense to start selling it. We sell it in 4 pint plastic milk bottles,a good way to re-use them and keeps the cost to the customer minimal (£1 a bottle).

    I think we have fed most of the tomatoes in this little corner of Oxfordshire.....lol.
