A Day in the Month – May 2011


Outside… It is just dark, I have just come back from shutting in the chickens and put the milk bottles out for the morning

I am thinking or plotting… Work tomorrow, more seed sowing, cleaning out goat sheds… The normal really

From the kitchen… This morning I made nettle and potato soup before work, after daring someone I work with to try something with nettles in (he doesn’t eat vegetables) everyone seemed to like it

I am wearing… Work clothes, custard and all

I am thankful for… Space

I am creating… Hopefully some order, although that is always an ongoing project

I am going… To bed in a minute

I am reading… The Gardener’s Year by Karel Carek. Poetry for gardeners

Here is a picture I want to sharing and why… This is the hedge next to where I was working today, as part of International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day soaked sunflower seeds have been scattered all along here. Not sure how well it will work but if even a few come up I’ll be happy
