Spring! In July!

For months, I've been looking forward to writing a blog about the time we asked a water diviner (sourcier) onto the land, to find the spring that would make self-sufficiency much, much easier. And cheaper.

It was going to be called, punnily enough: Diviner intervention.

But the spring couldn't wait and it sprung up right in the middle of the long field, near the veggie patch, the other day.


It'll be a long time before anything wipes the smile off our faces.

Looks like you planted the veggies in the right place - now all you need to do is design an irrigation system and you will be set! Hurrah!

I'm torn between Archimedes Screw driven by windmill, and solar pump. Only time, among other things, will tell.

Didn't the Sawbridge family show how to put the archimedes screw system to good use in their self-sufficiency programme a couple of years ago? Do you remember it? Did you see it?

Don't think I saw that one. The first series was excellent. Not a big fan of the second. What did they use?

It's August now . . . . . are you too busy grinning still to blog? How's the new dog working out for you? Any news on the trailer theft? It doesn't keep me awake at night (that's the job of the seagulls) but I am wondering . . . .
