So far this September…

We’ve been all about the friends and family staying, the foraging and preserving, the drying and storing, the harvesting and celebrating.

a gathering of Goddards (fairly sure that is the collective term)

raised beds covered with grass cutting (scythed) mulch

Rum’s third annual Blasda local food festival

drying flowers to make pot pourri

almost finished product

more flowers drying

home made mayonnaise

Not pictured but very much keeping us going is bramble picking and jam making (50 jars so far and counting), harvesting tomatoes and cucumbers from the polytunnel, plenty of scything and drying out the cuttings for animal bedding and using as mulch on the raised beds.
