The food production side has been a pleasure - tonight for dinner there were two meals, one comprising pumpkin soup and homemade bread while for the fussy ones pork mince, tomato sauce and rice washed down with a raspberry smoothie and a glass of cider (not for the kids!). The only purchased ingredients being the flour and yeast for the bread, the rice and a spoonful of local honey for the smoothie. It is great to be able to celebrate the joy of eating our own produce by sharing it with the world.
Today's tasks of preparing to concrete the dairy floor, putting in the first stump for the shearing shed/workshop, attaching a sculpture to the studio, assisting the farrier, pruning a vine and mulching a garden bed were all practical, physical and also an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday.
