Wow, what a crazy few months at work!
I'm so sorry I got so busy I couldn't spend time here. I'm back now, since my work has finished until the end of February (the painful part of being a casual academic! Work like a demon for 3 months, have three months without pay!) - it was great... very productive, but also very demanding.
Anyway, my garden has not had a single thing done in it. I feel horrible. I need to get into it in a bad way. I still have River Cottage fantasies! ;-) At least now I have time, which I'll divide between my desire to have an abundant garden, and my obsession for photography!
On the plus side, I have developed a keen interest in Charcuterie, since I bought a book on it. I intend to make my own bacon, various sausages, ham, and prosciutto. Yum yum yum....
I can't wait to talk to you all some more! :-)
