Happy May Day

Wishing each and every one of my readers a very Happy May Day.  

May the sun shine on you this weekend, and may you achieve everything you set out to do.

Nettles stewing in their bucket stack to make plant food.

I am off on a one day pig keeping course with lovely Hubby in a couple of hours.  We are staying overnight in a little B&B so we will be fresh to take it all in tomorrow morning. We have been looking forward to this for ages, so I'm hoping it's good! Tony the guy who's running it, says he will convert me to pork before the day is out (I'm almost vegetarian and don't usually touch any red meats), I'll let you know how he gets on.

Tomato plants, all grown up in their own little pots.
Before we go we've been having a bit of a tidying up and planting day, very satisfying. I have a makeshift potting table on the old broken fridge and the little cobbled together bench above to put my potted on plants on for watering, then it's back to the kitchen windowsill for them temporarily, while they grow big and strong like their earlier planted brothers.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend.

  1. Hi Sue,

    I'm not a huge pork (or red meat fan myself) let us know how you get on :-)

    Hope the sun shines on you too :-)

  2. Thank you and you have a lovely weekend too! Looking forward to reading about your pig weekend! How did the chicken course go a few weeks ago?
    Got to get some nettles on the go myself too, unfortunately we have plenty to pick in the garden! Will weed properly afterwards too!
    Take care

  3. Love your potting table!
    I have a rickety one too!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Happy May Day and happy weekend. Safe journey.

  5. Hi, lovely blog. Enjoy your weekend ... :0)

  6. Oh Sue, we seem to be in sync you and I, what with ponds, hens, and now pigs. Can't wait to hear all about the course. What kind of pigs are you getting? Have fun Bertie x
