Self-sufficient in Suburbia - spring edition
This is the latest edition of Self-Sufficient in Suburbia, covering spring: dry winter and wet May and June. We start by merging beehives, and end with swarms on our hands. One hen fell ill, eggs were laid without shells and rhubarb was turned into jam. Spring foraging got underway with nettles and wild garlic picked. Yet, despite our best efforts, the weather was not kind to us.
