Living Larders : Kintaline Bugs

It is a wonderful experience to be constantly surrounded by busy insect workers whereever we are on the farm. And this will just improve all the time with the added habitats we are creating every day.
A pal has been visiting and encouraging me to take more pictures of our bugs .. so have just uploaded an album of some of our insect friends on to our Facebook page

 

Living Larders : Verdant Abundance

So much abundance all around us, and this is just the start of our journey. A wee snap this morning of a corner : Rowan, Elder, Gorse, Raspberry, Mint, Chives, Sycamore … so much largesse for wildlife and ourselves in one space.

Living Larders : Eat Local; Buy Local

Sausages 7 ways : Bacon 5 ways.
We had run out of bacon and sausages so bought another pig from another local producer who was taking stock over to Mull for slaughter. These were the big brothers of our new girls, GREAT meat, and a fun day had making lots of different flavoured sausages today. The bacon will be sliced tomorrow and better breakfasts will follow <g>
