The garden is coming along well. I spent some time out there yesterday planting, picking, sitting, thinking, talking to the chooks and planning. I still haven't finished my herbs but it all waits for its own time. Not much is hurried here. If it isn't done today, it might be done tomorrow, or the next day.
We have been eating the cucumbers when they're small and sweet and so far we haven't had a glut of them. If we do, I'll be making bread and butter cucumbers. The little yellow cucumber flowers keep blooming and every day there are more cucumbers to be picked.
But while they're still plentiful and as green as a leprechaun's hat, we feed them to the chickens. The girls are also being fed warm porridge during the cold months, lots of green leaves and always have grain mixed with pellets in their feed hopper.
ADDITION: I've added the Amazon box again. This time there are two - one for the American Amazon and one for the United Kingdom Amazon. I had an email request to put them back, thanks, Anwen, for your support. I don't want them to intrude too much on what we are doing here and I've tried to blend them in as best I could with the look of the site.
