I keep forgetting to post here. Very busy watering!

So I now have carrots, spring onions, potatoes, garlic, strawberries, dwarf and climbing French beans, cauliflowers and courgettes in various states of growth.

Hopefully the good weather will continue, as everything is shooting up, although a little rain would be appreciated.

I have managed to get hold of a copy of 'The Encyclopedia of Country Living' (9th Edition?) by Carla Emery which covers an outstanding number of subjects, based around producing your own food and preserving and cooking it, plus keeping animals, cooking on a woodburning stove, etc etc etc. Highly recommended. Currently thinking about trying to make 'fruit leathers'....
