Something I have been wanting to try for ages is now ticked off the list.
Making our own salt from sea water.
It was a sunshine and showers day but being the. Day after our welsh firebreak lockdown we didn’t care
And left to simmer for several hours, this is were the rayburn is a blessing
Then what you are left with is lovely sea salt, I filled my grinder and a small jar.
I loved doing this and it’s so easy I will definitely be doing this again when salt runs low.
During the week I had a birthday now 61 were have the years gone, there is definitely natly signs of age, joints ache and things seem to take longer, it was a very wet muddy day, Martin was away at work, he left me a card and some money , got lots of chocolates sent to me and given to me, books and some new plants for the garden. I treated myself with the money to these two beauties
Lucifer and George they are metal garden ornaments, and going to be part of a mystical garden I am planning, now most things are established along with routine on the smallholding I am starting to sort the garden and have lots of ideas I want to implement, I often go through Pinterest in the evening and save ideas that I think I can work with. Over winter I have lots of structural stuff I want to get in place and start some planting, one thing is a planted moon border, which compromises of plants and flowers that reflect the light of the moon Mainly whites and lime green and are night scented, so if anyone has any suggestions or has a moon garden let me know.
