Well the first of our cockerels that we despatched a couple of weeks ago has now been cooked and served for Sunday Lunch! It was very tender and with good flavour. Once I get the polytunnel and vegetable garden underway, we can repeat a similar event as last year when all the meat and vegetables on our plates were home grown! The outside ground is still too wet to dig, but we will soon be able to get some seeds started in the polytunnel on the propogator shelf I made. I will have to stem the urge to plant too soon as I have been caught out like that before. In any event, plants have a wonderful habit of catching up anyway, even if they are planted a little late!
