Spent a few hours inoculating some hardwood logs with shiitake mushroom spawn.

Ferments, pickles, jellies and jams.

Been busy over the last couple of months preservingĀ some of the garden produce and wild foraged berries. Sauerkraut, pickled beets, courgettes and elderberry jelly and soup!

Went out this evening to give the hens and ducks some grain and came back with this little lot for my evening meal! The main veg garden here is on a slight slope - the chickens at the bottom and the ducks at the top (veggies growing in between). I have to walk between the chooks and ducks several times a day (for feeding and collecting eggs) which means I can also always have a look for produce in the garden that needs picking, nothing goes unnoticed and I come back to the garden with several jobs all taken care of in one outing and an armful of fresh veg!
