Getting ready for a retreat: Spring Planting

home-baked bread and black sheep

We are in the middle of Spring Planting Week – clearing, digging, muck-spreading and sowing, as well as evening activities.

Getting ready for a retreat means getting the house spick and span, preparing the work programme so that it all goes smoothly – and baking for the hungry workers . . .

These black sheep are sugar-free, vegan and delicious. And they are appropriate for the season, the fields round about are full of little lambs, mostly white it has to be said, but with the occasional black or piebald one.
