A bit milder today and a drumming great spotted woodpecker (flaggspett) was heard again in the garden this morning!
Well, I survived the last 3 intensive days, first travelling from the UK whilst preparing for Wednesday’s talk about my study trip to Japan in spring 2016 at Ringve in Trondheim, followed by last night’s Webinar on edible perennials and winter vegetables. Sometimes I take on a bit too much but it was fun!
You can see the webinar, moderated by Emilia Rekestad from Permaculture Sweden (I start at about 8:20 mins in to the recording and it lasts a little over 2 hours!). ENJOY!
It was strange to have so many people in my living room and they were mostly totally quiet and no eye contact was odd also! Anyway, it seems to have worked well technically. See what you think!
Arrived back home from the UK late last night to -15C and I had to literally plough up the driveway with my suitcase. Nothing frozen in the house and that view was still there and splendid with sea smoke this morning!
Great family lunch in a pub at Shawford in Hampshire followed by a walk along the river between Shawford and Hampshire
It’s difficult to believe that the spring foraging season has come so far here in Hampshire, UK whilst on the other side of the North Sea there are meter high banks of snow in the south!
A few pictures from my Mum and Dad’s garden in Chandlers Ford, a walk around Old Town, Southampton, my talk on Hungry Gap veg at the Art Centre last night (there is no hungry gap in Southern England) and finally pictures of currently foragable plants!
