We’re now on about the 6 week countdown to The Boot opening AAAAHHHHHHH!!!! So much to do still. But it’s looking pretty blummin’ good. I’ve whacked in loads of riven chestnut fencing, put some proper concrete posts in and slid the fence panels in between! And would you believe that nothing has fallen over yet?! Even in the light to moderate winds we’ve been suffering under.

We’ve got 12 beautiful Burford Brown hens (pullets) in – got two eggs yesterday with which I had a celebratory eggs-on-toast with. They’ll soon be gorging on gorgeous, rich leftovers from the kitchen. The Brahma cockerel didn’t know what had hit him… bless.

And we have a raven – apparently mum and dad have had something to do with the Harry Potter films.. Heard this morning from the Avian Bird Sex Testing Centre (yes, there is such a thing) that our Grippe is a girl! She’s only 6 weeks and has been following me around the kitchen garden, eating SO MUCH FOOD (liver and scrambled eggs. And now worms). Getting a proper flap-on now, so won’t be long before she’s flying – I have jesses, anklets, a leash and creance so will start her on short flights from a rail to my glove. Also gonna put in a proper aviary so she has a base (and not a perch next to my laptop).

Am doing a proper UK wide road trip this weekend – picking up an awesome greenhouse from up North – will fit a table of 20 so we can do groaning table buffets of all-awesome salads from our own garden. And, also super coolly, I have 10 gewurztraminer vines to plant  – half to go around the greenhouse, half around the terrace & herb garden. Call me a heathen but that’s my fave wine – so will try my damndest to knock out some homebrew Gewurz in a coupla years!

Got loads more but will save it for another post…

  1. I don’t even know the way I ended up right here, but I assumed this post used to be great. I don’t realize who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger should you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  2. I would love to add when you do not surely have an insurance policy otherwise you do not form part of any group insurance, you may well benefit from seeking the aid of a health insurance agent. Self-employed or people with medical conditions generally seek the help of the health insurance broker. Thanks for your article.

  3. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  4. Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
