Forgive me Blogfather for I have sinned. It’s been more than a week since my last post.
I have been slack indeed. It’s just that I came back to the city to find the company I work for has made another round of drastic redundancies (including my entire team) and I have been struggling to pick up the pieces since returning to work. Even though I was not one of the unlucky ones to suddenly lose their jobs it’s still taken a rather large chunk out of my energy and confidence and I just want to crawl into bed and stay there for a very long time.
And so I have put off posting these photos from the farm because that would mean that harvest is well and truly over for the year and I have to go back to my desk and computer. sigh.
Harvest was, as it always is, glorious. I really love being a part of my family and think it’s so wonderful and amazing how people just come and help out, all for free, just cause they love my parents so much.
I wish I had a green thumb and knew more about growing things. I guess if i listened more to my parents I might learn.
Here are some pics from the Harvest. There’s more on my flickr page if you are interested.
I’ll work on a post showing you exactly how your olive oil is made and get it up soon.
Oh, I also made some tasty baked beans for harvest and a really lovely rose lemonade so I will post recipes soon too!
