After a spell of being ill (useful to get this out of the way before the weather turns beautiful), the weather turned beautiful.

I cut the field of écovallée for the first time yesterday – I’ll try and remember to take a picture. Today, I have some hardcore gardening to do for someone with an inconceivably steep, nettle-covered bank. Then an easy cut somewhere else tomorrow. Then the rain’s due to return and I’ll get back to music and websites. This is my annual dance with the weather – work when it’s dry, do other work when it’s wet. Hopefully, it all gets done. There’s certainly a lot of it to do.

Soon, a blog post offering reasons to come to écovallée this year…
