What are you doing to celebrate the longest day of the year?
We have the fire going 24/7 and are tucked up in bed early……..
The solstice is a natural turning point in the year. Historically it was a time of new beginnings, of rebirth and revival. From now on the days will lengthen and the warmth of summer is on its way. Yeah!!
It also for us as farmers is the time to check the lambs that are being born. I always feel its too cold for them to be born this time of the year but they seem to always lamb at this time. Haven’t got any little ones to feed yet but I am sure that’s coming.!!
We have had quite a lot of rain here in the South West but it does not stop us from being out doors. We are digging potatoes- beetroot-picking the last of the butternuts – mowing- planting and there’s many other jobs that need doing.!!
Here is a picture of white asparagus and quinoa that i was lucky to try. (In Europe)
Just a quick little post to wish you all a happy solstice.
