This blog is mainly a rambling kind of diary of the transition from smallholderwannabe to smallholder.

I've been making sourdough bread - three times now. Yesterday's was not exactly a success. The hens said it was fine. We ate some for breakfast because there was nothing else. And then the hens had some. At least it only cost the flour to make. And one teaspoon of sugar. I'll start again with some yeast next time I get to Tesco and see how far I get with it then.

We've had blackberries for pudding twice this week. I only picked the sweet one at the end of the spray of fruit on the bramble. There are not many blackberries about yet but hopefully that is the start of many good puddings to come. I do hope I find enough to do some jam or jelly because that is lovely in the winter.

I'm being summoned. Time to go.
