Thank you and goodbye

It had probably become apparent that I was no longer writing this blog, but I have now also left Mucknell. I had a wonderful year with the community, but like many good things it had to come to an end. Thank you to all who were also interested.

You might want to follow me at my new blog (at the time of writing no posts yet!) and on Twitter.

In the red corner ...

... and in the other red corner

Home grown

On the menu today: potatoes, beans, courgettes, rhubarb, tomatoes, lettuce. Yum!

It's proving a challenge to integrate the needs of the kitchen with the availability of the veg, but it is VERY good to eat something we sowed, pricked out, potted on, planted out, weeded and watered.

Conic sections of speech

The commentary I'm using alongside the evening readings from Luke is fond of using the word 'parabolic' in the discussion whenever Jesus breaks into a parable, which got me thinking whimsically again... Jesus often responds elliptically to questions, isn't known to use circular arguments, but it is open to question whether he indulges in hyperbole.

Common Darter

Relaxing by the swales on a hot Sunday morning.

Burpees Delicious

10cm and counting. I forgot to turn the irrigation off on Sunday night, so the butt was dry come Monday and the tomatoes bulging.

Making hay

The lines of cuttings on Sunday morning, just before...

... they baled them.

Beautiful green hay for the horses next door.
