To those who of you who follow this blog. You know that I often go to see an agricultural mechanic who repairs anything and his yard is an Aladdin's cave for us smallholders. He's currently renovating (supposed to be) an old hand pulper for me. He also mills grain and sells it. So the other week I asked him if it would grow if I planted it. He told me it would so we decided to have an experiment in the smallholding kitchen.
"Get your lovely straw."
The lads and lasses have been in the yard, nearly six months. Do you think Spring will ever arrive?
