|Our woodland is finally FULL of Bluebells!|
|Jingo, Shetland ram extraordinaire|
|Nibble still sleeps on her mums back, 4wks old now|
|Nibble likes a scratch|
In my defence, she does it to my visitors too. None of them have been able to resist the Nibble either.
|Pedigree Shetland Black Ram|
|Shetlands: Moorit mum and wee black ram|
|Beautiful Black Shetland Ram|
|Willows adder bite|
I drew the blue line around the venom site to keep an eye on it spreading. Adder bites in dogs can be VERY serious indeed. She is fully recovered now, thankfully!
Finally we have our rocket stove! Wanted this for ages to replace our little cast iron, single hob ring that runs off a gas bottle. It fires a dream. Yesterday a fried brekkie, today pancakes and of course copious amounts of hot water! All from a handful of twigs. AMAZING bit of kit! We got ours from wildstoves.co.uk for £40 and £3pp.
|English yew longbow|
|Violet Oil beetle|
This giant hairy caterpillar lives in the woods. I would dearly love to know what he's going to be!
|Spring foraged salad|
I'm feasting on a lot of wild foods at the moment, it's fantastic! I spied a chicken of the woods growing form one of our oaks. Should be troughing on that in the next week or so!
|Save Our Woods board meeting|
We hatched many plans!
So.. this is just a taster of what's been going on down here on the farm. I'll try to be a bit more prolific in my blogging to keep you more up to date!
Now I'm just off to do my nightly rain dance... it takes a few weeks to work sometimes *ahem*
