I can’t believe how quickly the week has flown by – it only seems like yesterday that I posted the last set of Friday Favourites. It’s a beautiful Spring day here – clear blue skies with just a hint of bite in the air. The weekend promises something similar, so hopefully I’ll get started on planting out my seedlings. We’re also hoping to build a greenhouse using the old windows from the house. Busy, busy.
Here are a few of my favourite reads from the past week:
- This story about a “geep” (cross between a goat and a sheep) born in Kildare gave me a good giggle. Only in Ireland, folks!
- Still stuck in my chicken craze, I enjoyed these designer chicken coops. I particularly like the “Hobbit” version.
- A year to the day since it was first published, I very much enjoyed this article on rare-breed pig-keeping from Miss Foodwise. Both Arūnas and I love pigs so a few rare-breeds might be next to join our little farm.
- I can’t wait to get my hands on this beautiful new book by Ashley English which I discovered via Imen’s blog. I love garden parties (I even had one for my wedding) and this book is full of inspiration and ideas for planning outdoor gatherings.
- I want to make this bright green couscous salad from Katie at the Kitchen door. All those greens just make me swoon.

Geep. I’ve heard it all now!

You obviously think so much like me…. I too had plans for a greenhouse using up the old house windows…… 5 years on I’m still waiting…. but I suppose I do have the polytunnel!!! Have a lovely weekend 🙂
I’ve a feeling something similar might happen here, Margaret. Either that or I’ll exhaust myself nagging! A polytunnel would do me fine, really – I just need somewhere warm.
Will be jealous if your greenhouse goes ahead 🙂
