As the Storm Rages…

Shed at Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture gardensAs I write this the video is uploading…slowly and tentatively, as we are enduring power-outs with the storm raging and the day that’s in it!

This is a day for endless pots of tea and toast, crumpets, cake…comfort food, just lashings of tea and cake!

Each year that passes sees the gardens grow more abundant and protective.
