My latest discovery Hania Rani, but maybe I'm late to the party. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFRdoYfZYUY

Always good to read your writings Ben, but your note of getting older (or at least the perception) had me wondering about your rites....

Maybe too deep for a blog comment, but I (and maybe others) would be interested in your thoughts about your long term at the Barracks.

It seems like a LOT of work... do you (& the pigs) have plans for 5, 10 years or longer, or like a start-up is it live from one winter to the next and enjoy it while you can?

I would recommend Max Richter if you wanna get lost in some classical music. He’s done the theme music for some big American tv shows, but his music is amazing. He also shares your alma mater. 😊

Hi Ben, I hope those those cold frames are a big help. Was watching Gardeners' World and Monty was saying that he'd had a 50°C difference from July to midwinter. Hes had nearly 40°C, to -14°C, floods and then the driest February he can remember. This is the problem here in Haute Loire (except that that water table is extremely low, as in a lot of France now), and, I imagine, where you are. We have to rethink entirely what we're going to plant. I've finished my coldframes but it's forecast 20°C this week and still 0°C at night. Too cold to sow outside for the moment. Time still to get peas and French beans in the veggie plot. Cheer up. Spring IS on its way.
