Lots going on with our happy gang here.  

2 little projects on the go,

- making our outdoor kitchen, so that campers or anyone here can cook inside outside - by summer it should be for cooking mostly by the sun or rocket-stove.

- here are Gustav and Sean, friend of Gustav and Jade, a gem of the Irish race and thankfully here for a month.

- and little terraces bult into our releif drainage gully

The outdoor chess board is coming along - need some fine weather to do the tiles, then we will be looking for people to carve the pieces.

Jenny and Onyx finally left (sob, sob) after two and a half months, we wish them all the best and hope to see them back at the end of the year. Here are Onyx and Megan, great friends, on the swings...

Plans afoot for free-ranging chickens, turkeys and ducks over the varzea (meadow) land - keep viewing to see developments.....

And lots of rain - 12 cm in a week, so our van can't cross the river for a while again.

More soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Well done you all. Lovely bird hotel!
    Just a quick note to say thank you for sharing your house and land with me whilst embarking on my PDC, permaculture design course, varzea viva, Portugal. You made me feel very welcome and like part of your family. It was really reasuring seeing permaculture in practice and seeing you at one with the land and all the people on the PDC course.
    Thank you.
