    Matt and me are in a sea swimming group at the moment. We swim every day. The first picture is matts he got the sun just coming up and the second picture is the moment before the dawn.
    Every day swimming is great for your immune system and it speeds up your metabolism. It’s also a great way to release endorphins and we have great laugh afterwards getting dressed.

Just cut the stems off and place them in cardboard that has been steamed/boiled and then drained so that it’s damp.once they take on the cardboard i transfer them to straw or grain substrates.
      I’ve also tried growing them in Petri dishes on agar and several other methods.

    Lucky to have been able to swim at both dawn and dusk today. There is something special about sunrise and sunset in the ocean. Frosty start to the day with ice on windshields but it meant you could really appreciate how warm the sea still is at this time of year.

    Lucky to have been able to swim at both dawn and dusk today. There is something special about sunrise and sunset in the ocean. Frosty start to the day with ice on windshields but it meant you could really appreciate how warm the sea still is at this time of year.

    As a life long swimmer it’s great to see people taking up sea swimming at the moment and in general taking advantage of the natural amenities around them.

    My bee garden update. Spear thistles and Borage are attracting lots of bees. Love the contrast of the spear thistle pink against the white of the wild carrot.

    Small tortoise shells are also emerging they love the leaves of the Malva Sylvestrus. There are lots of plants over 8 feet tall like these milk thistles in the garden.

    I normally dont make a lot of jam but this year the crop of most fruits is huge and I am concerned about potential food shortages in the UK having a knock on effect in Ireland. We have frozen most of the fruit and made small batches of jam that can be stored in cupboards. So far Cherry, Black Currant, Red Currant, Gooseberry, Rasberry.

    Came across a tree laden with cherrie this morning. It was near a rookery full of crows and I think the birds that normally eat them were avoiding the area. Only took what I could reach and still got a good few kilos.

    Chamomile putting on a show in the garden. Grown from teabags they make a great replacement for grass and can even be used to create a scented lawn that gives off a fragrance when you walk or sit on it.
