HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO KATIE ON WINNING GOLD AT THE 2012 OLYMPICS!!
GO TEAM IRELAND!!
Today the sun is beaming on Ireland and it sure does make a difference! The silage has been baled on the hill so I took Belle and Pippin for a little walk scattering black winged crows as we went. The boys and I finally made it down to the chronically overgrown vegetable patch and our battle through the nettles was rewarded with broad beans, purple and yellow beetroot and a single potato...We need to put on wellies and bring a spade next time... A few days ago Kev also found a bounty of tiny, jewelled blackcurrants hidden in the hedge which I made into blackcurrant and almond cake and a teeny tiny pot of jam.
