Red onions and seeds dry in the heat of the afternoon sun at Bealtaine Cottage. The Permaculture harvest is on it’s way.
I am saving lots of seed from the biggest, healthiest and tastiest plants!
The rain came and has left a little water…not much, but enough to fill the tank in the loft!
Herbs and seeds are coming into their own!
Potatoes are appearing where none were planted…these have grown from seed dropped last year and have not been earthed up!
Blackcurrants are taking over the gardens!
Apples are plumping out…
Runner beans are seeking Heaven…
Raspberries are being eaten straight from the garden!
Broad Beans are looking monstrous!
And the Potager beds have received their second planting…
My brother Hugh O’Neill has made some very special Bog Oak pendants for the Bealtaine Cottage Etsy shop.
Hugh has carved some Rune and Ogham symbols on some of these special little pieces of Bog Oak.
The wood is carved and polished by Hugh into these amazing pendants, each accompanied by glass or wooden beads…
A little piece of Ancient Ireland to wear around your neck!
You can find these on the Bealtaine Cottage Etsy Shop…
The garden looks wonderful, I am glad that you are having cooler weather . Your brother’s did a wonderful job on the bog necklaces and I am going to order 2 at least soon. a wonderful memory piece from Ireland. The pictures of the peas and onions are wonderful, I can almost taste them.
My best to you.
I really enjoyed my time out at your farm recently…saving your blogs for a jolly good read is a weekly treat!
Hello–asking a question, as I don’t do Facebook. About the oak pendants–what kind of cord are they on…is it leather?
No, not leather as I try to avoid leather…but it is very strong and looks like leather, with an adjustable slip-knot fastening.
