Terrifying prospect of writing blog posts without pictures; has to be faced square on .
For tech reasons unfathomable (at least to me) I am unable to upload pictures from my phone camera to this blog.
What a feeble excuse for not posting...
But you haven't really missed much visuals wise.
The last few weeks have mostly been filled with not so photogenic vegetable growing tasks,. Autumn tidying, weeding, and so on.
With luck all will be re established by my return. Hopefully in time for the golden globes, the just reward of the squash harvest.
But in the meantime.
Another excursion looms.
By bike (well train first)
What larks! Initially a fact finding business trip. to discuss , show and tell, with fellow 'Hairy Farmers' the triumphs and trevails of medium scale farm tech, adapted and even fabricated to suit the needs of an individual operation.
I am keen to procure, or at least commission, a couple of "Foot-wide Ho's"
And yes, for sure there's a song in there somewhere...
Just the thing for taming the earthen paths between the vegetable beds..
You might find some pictures there..
Then afterwards, well the open road beckons.
At liberty for over ten days with a tent, a vague plan, and some vital local knowledge procured from those many and various kind souls willing to share it.
Going West; if the wind and weather allow. Some new places, and perhaps revisiting some familiar.
So the challenge is to relay all this without the use of pictures.
I will of course take a phone camera, and will find it hard to resist posting up on instagram, with damn fool #hashtags to amuse my progeny..
So if you want a random selection, and have the necessary channels.. *
I can be found.... @vegetable_dalliance
if you're lucky you'll get some snaps of other peoples vegetables
*If in doubt ask a patient younger person... It's really not difficult; believe me; if I can do it... Anyone can :)
