Fencing, sowing, & butterflies

The Grasshopper warblers are back from Africa. We have seen peacock and small tortoiseshell butterflys about that have come out of hibernation from last year now the mild weather is here.
Eileen has sown broad beans, french beans, dwarf french beans, and courgettes - yellow and green.
Mark has been busy putting up a new boundary fence and setting more willow slips along our boundary. Eileen weaves willow baskets occasionally. We have been blessed with sunny, dry weather.
We need to source some wine yeast so we can begin making country wines again. In the past we have successfully made nettle, carrot, gorse, beetroot, and fig and rosehip.
