The seasons have changed, crops have grown and campers are rolling in. It feels like life is buzzing here at Henbant.
I accidentally prepare a midnight feast for a mouse, bottle feed my first lamb, learn about the benefits of egg mobiles and doff my cap to our seedlings' first true leaves.
We've been building the beds for the market garden, watching out for lambs, eating our first harvest and enjoying time together.
The team walked the land at Henbant, weeded the market garden, rescued a few chickens and re-created Wes Anderson's Life Aquatic.
I've been looking after the chickens, seed sowing for the market/kitchen gardens and learning how to use a drill.
My first two weeks at Henbant have been filled with delicious food, laughter around the dinner table, roaring fires, cows, chickens, sheep, brambles and plenty of lessons in regenerative agriculture.
Tagetes patula (French marigold) brightens up any garden and holds many spiritual and wellbeing properties.
