Here’s a video I found linked on Facebook yesterday. Apparently Vermont Compost Company has been feeding its chickens from compost piles for over a decade!

It’s encouraging to find out that someone’s already doing something similar to the duck-assisted composting we started just a few weeks ago. Now that we have definite proof that this is possible, we’re making plans for expanding and refining our process. We just need to get more of our property fenced in (which will have to wait until thawed ground and extra money coincide), and we’ll have to spend some time experimenting and calculating when the piles have the most duck food so that we can stagger them correctly.

This video is just a clip; watch the full piece on Geoff Lawton’s website. Apparently Lawton is trying a variation on this method himself, so keep an eye out for future videos.

The Fastest Way To Dry Herbs

We want to make the most of every herb we grow this year. We also want to store some for later use. And we want to do it quickly. For small batches, the most convenient drying method we have found is…the microwave!

Wash the leaves. Lay them out on dry paper towels, above and below. Place them in the microwave at 30 second intervals until nice and crisp. Our usual drying time is 1 minute.

#actors who are actually their character

the greatest casting ever.

Even better when you think about how Dan got a place for himself in NY to continue his career, Emma went to a school in USA, and Rupert bought an ice cream truck.

Follow your dreams Rupert

I didn’t know this. So I looked it up and - HE ACTUALLY DID.image

‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short.

I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. ‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”

It makes it even better that he just GIVES the icecream away.
