    First Egg of 2019!

    Mine started moulding in October and started laying again last week! 10 eggs from one hen and 3 from the other but happy to be getting them again 😀

    Christmas Markets - Anyone Going to One?

    It’s Glühwein GS 😉 Budapest has to be one of my favourite Christmas markets! I’m lucky that I travel all over Europe with work (way too much, but that’s the job 😂) but this year I didn’t get to see any apart from Edinburgh which is nice but not the same in the pouring rain! They are all very similar but I love it when it’s freezing cold. One of my favourites is Munich. A mug of Kinderpunsch (children’s mulled wine😂) and a wander around eating potato Rösti with apple purée! Then it’s started snowing. Heavenly.

    Christmas Eve Boxes

    Dad is German and we sometimes did present opening on the 24th, even though we live in the UK. We weren’t allowed to open the ‘big’ present until Christmas morning though ;0) we then had to wait until after Christmas lunch to open the presents ynder the tree from friends and relatives...that lunch really dragged when I was little! 😂

    So how is the season so far?

    Will do! Iucky that the boundary fence along side is sloes and brambles so i do get some protection from the marauding deer!

    So how is the season so far?

    It has been rabbit proofed but deer fencing is too expensive. I'm lucky that I have a corner plot. There is a huge hedge down one side plus I fence in the rest of the plot to stop the Terrier escaping. I'm lucky that the deer rarely come into my plot. They've had the chard, beetroot tops and kale but during the summer, everything else is left alone.....

    Himalayan Salt Lamp

    Correct DM. Think it takes up too much space on the server.

    Leave Chicken door open?!

    I always leave the door open to the Eglu. I work away from home a couple of nights per week (I have a walk in run with roof) and the hens are fine. When it is really cold, I ask my neighbour to close the door but the Eglu is in a sheltered spot and the hens seem fine.

    So how is the season so far?

    My Jerusalem artichokes are still going strong, but it's looks like deer have discovered the kale Need to spend a few days at the lottie to get everything cleared up, but it's daunting. I'll get there....

    So how is the season so far?

    I pruned my black currants last week (2 months late ) Haven’t really had time or the energy to go to the Lottie this year. Have move time off in March so need to pull my finger out and start digging. The hens appreciated the kale I picked for them and I still have onions hanging up in the shed, which look ok.

    Speckled eggs or not..?

    I've had my new speckledy hen for a couple of months. The eggs are always darker than the Sussex hybrid and two bluebelles. They always have specks on them...

    Nice lip moisturiser recommendations please.

    I *cough* never use lip balm, but have one in every pocket, bag, allotment shed, car etc. Usually the black chapstick, green 'Hallo Vera' tin but the BEST one is Nipple balm for lips by Dr Lipp. £9 a tube, but you need 1mm from the tube, it stays on for hours and one tube has lasted me 9+ months. It's in my waistcoat pocket for work as my lips really dry out when I'm flying (my job).

    So how is the season so far?

    I've only really been down to the lottie to harvest bits and bobs. I've covered the carrots in straw and fleece, taken the cages off the sprouts and cut down all the raspberry canes. One of the plot holders works at a mushroom farm, so gave me several bales of spent compost. That has all been spread around the raspberries and a couple of other beds for next year. I really need to repaint the shed, but running out of time and it's been so wet. Onions are all dry and stored in boxes in the conservatory. Beetroot in soil in boxes too, but not doing too well. I might roast, then freeze them. The deer that have raided the allotments have finally found my little corner plot and ate all my chard. The hens won't be happy this winter but I've covered it with plastic cloches and it's reshooting, so hopefully it'll be ok. The turnips and swedes weren't touched and are doing well. Parnsips (all 5 of them ) are ok! Need to plan for next year now *excitedly gets the seed catalogues out*
