Harvest Monday, Daphne Dandelions has a harvest Monday , I don't always remember to take photos of what we harvest but I did this Monday. By the end of the week we will be sick of spinach and broad beans they are going to be on the menu most nights.
Can you see the strawberry ready to pick?
First strawberry of the season - we never seem to get sick of strawberries YUMMMM.
Molly lines up for trimmings when ever I'm in the garden. I love Molly she is such a character - getting on now age 13 or 14. The neighbours goat keeps coming over and picking on her. Poor old Molly! My phone call to the neighbour has meant their goat is looking for a new home, as they can't keep their goat inside fences (been there done that over the years with Molly's kids.)
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around here SMILE.
Talking of Briar we got a lovely email from her new home (SOB we still miss Briar. None of us liked moving on our old queens - hence the reason we stopped breeding.)
Just to let you know that Briar Rose is the best rabbit catcher ever. She never makes any attempt to eat them but she does catch some very big ones and brings them all home and into the house of course. She is doing just fine. Has spent most of the winter by the fire and in my bed at night she knows where to find the warmth. I am sure she misses my husband and often sits in his chair and looks at me as if to say when are you going to sit down with me.
I do hope everything is going well for you folk. I guess you will have a lot of bookings for cats over Christmas. Take care love from Briar and Heather.
Bircher Museli (I base my recipe on Wild Healths) but I don't really measure just chuck in oats, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins. My evening routine is to set some in a bowl to soak overnight ready for breakfast the next morning.
I must share the most yummiest yoghurt ever from Biofarm - mmm bush honey is divine!
