We started putting up the polytunnel a couple of weeks ago (in the pouring rain), Daniela came to stay and helped (our first unofficial woofer)….I went away for a week and Rick made a brilliant bench for the tunnel out of a couple of old pallets and an oak beam and continued to construct the door frames from small pines that he felled at christmas, today the doors were hung and because it was a leaf day I planted two beds either side of the east entrance (herbs, rocket and spinach). We’ve finally burnt some stuff and let the chickens out, feel like we’re really getting a lot done now the weather has turned and get a full days work in.
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
