Hatching time!

Posted on

WP_20160317_10_32_31_ProThere’s never a dull moment, here in the forest. With Mandy away in Haiti, everything decided to happen at once; tortoise hatching, the long awaited wood-removal,  and, hopefully, the impending arrival of the container in which to build my new kitchen. Between catching escapee chickens, monitoring tortoise hatching, being the crane-operator’s assistant for moving a large pile of several-tonne hunks of hardwood, and the usual baking, there’s not been much time to sit down and write! Meanwhile the garden continues to grow despite the moderately dry weather, and the island seems to become increasingly hungry for delicious wood-fired bread – so be sure to check out our full listing tomorrow, and get your orders in early!WP_20160314_12_40_56_ProChayote plants! Going to try growing these vines along the fence lines for their tasty, crunchy fruit.
