I love those beads you're making. Really cool!

Wish we could keep chickens in our garden, but we have one set of really awful neighbours and they'd take us to court because of the noise as soon as you could say "cluck"...

So I say keep your chickens, count your eggs before they're hatched and look into WFO recipes with lots of eggs in them!

Wow
big couple of days. i have had big highs and now low lows.
on saturday i made fetta cheese ,Yoghurt and gourmet fetta.
this was very productive and then today i made Gouda/edam cheese, riccotta and paneer, Cultured sour cream and butter milk.
this was good to do and i even then used the Yoghurt to make a waldorf salad.
we used some pears and apples from the garden and hazelnuts we picked from a farm down the road. oh and of course the bum nuts were from the Dixi chicks.
the sad/low mood is that not all of my insulation bricks did not turn up.
so now i can not start building the oven.
i will post photos of my garden edge tommorrow i am very pleased with way they hve come out.

well things are getting back on track now. i have formed up most of the next garden bed but did not have enough matirial to form up the complete thing.
as you can see from the images i will have a joint in the walls. oh well the mesh goes through the whole wall so it will work.

Yes indeed, autumn is there! It's my favorite time of year, but honestly, you're welcome to it at the moment. I'm quite happy to have spring up here!

Yard work season, but I don't aspire to your level in that realm! I'll stick with the oven for now. Nice looking work!

when it all started out i was not looking at anything like what it has become. i have this song going around in my head "From little things big things grow" and that is how it went from oven to yard.
As i am going along i must say i am happy with the results if not a little slow.
