1. Wheat and Barley sprouts lined up on their rack in the shed. We feed the pigs and chickens sprouted and soaked grain as it increases the nutritional value and digestibility. The cattle and sheep also receive a small amount of sprouted barley in their chaff and mineral mix every couple of days. We've so much grain out at once, in various stages of sprouting and soaking that I refer to it as "the sprout factory".
2. The face of a happy pig, Wilbur, during breakfast (in case you missed the Pig Project post, catch up here)
3. Sheep enjoying the shade on a sunny afternon
4 & 5. My Mitred Blanket is complete - finally! It only took two and half years. I'm very happy with the result and am now knitting away on my Clara Bow Sweater. I was determined to get both large projects out of the way this year and with one ticked off, I'm dreaming of knitting socks. But only once my sweater is finished.
6. Spelt Sourdough is fast becoming part of my Sunday morning ritual. I allow myself to enjoy a slower morning on Sundays, which is perfect for bread baking. The dough is made and shaped the night before, ready for baking first thing.
I enjoy a cup of tea while it warms up, then another cup whilst the bread is baking. By the time it is cooked I have enjoyed a slow breakfast, usually done some knitting and am ready to wander out into the sunshine and feed the animals.
Have you any Sunday Snippets to share?
Hope you've had a good week.
Here's to the new week (and almost a new month!)
