Having been the carers of this plot for eight months one thing that is very apparent is the vast amount of Stuff that members of the plant kingdom can create out of thin air. We decide to thin a little bit of hedge or cut back some shrubs and before we know it there are enormous piles of output. It has to be assessed: firewood? kindling? compost? pig fodder?
For our neighbouring farmer it is simple – his rampant hedges receive the tractor treatment and end up like this
We start to store up the energy fixed out of the air. Some of it gifted by same farmer
Some of it bought with real money
Our hedge trimming is more selective – hazel to the pigs; blackberries left to ripen
Spot likes to convert fixed carbon into pork (shush – not hers – next generation) and lovely droppings
As the current duck(lings?) get a bit more space
the ones inside their shells inside the incubator inside the kitchen are pipping tonight.
