I'm making nettle beer this afternoon. It's a dangerous occupation and I have a few stings to prove it. So, while I wait for the nettles to boil and then cool sufficiently, I'm here writing and reading too.
It's been a productive day. And absolutely gorgeous weatherwise.
- I sowed pak choy, telephone peas and a row of saxa radish.
- Made an experimental batch of chilli beer which I'm not holding out much hope for.
- Moved the ram up to visit the ewes.
- Accidently had a nap.
- Baked for lunchboxes.
- And all the usual stuff.
My little calf, Trilby, is growing up and is ready to be weaned. That's my opinion, not hers.
It truly was glorious here today. But a little bit of rain to settle the dust would be wonderful.
