My name is Heather, although I am using the tag of Rooster. My husband Steve and I have just found your sight. It looks really great, and gives us a few ideas into The Good Life.
We already keep chickens and enjoy the free range eggs they give us and like you, have just acquired an allotment, which requires a lot of work. We are also enbarking on keeping bees. We have just recently jointed our local bee keeping association, and have just obtained our first swarm. They are amazing creatures to watch.
I am also about to start making Jams, Jellies, and Pickles, and having acquired a huge amount of Damages near our Apiary and following your receipe for damson cheese produced a quantity, although now it is now very difficult to get out of the jars. I may make with the rest damsons jam, and Steve intends to use about 4 pound to make damson wine.
Will pop back to the sight shortly,but must go now and make my jams.
Welcome Heather, it actually helps to be mad most days I find
Welcome to the forum & to the multiple levels of entertainment, knowledge, friendship & sheer madness. It is a rare group of people who enjoy each other's company. I am sure you will enjoy it.
