Down but not out......

Big plans for this weekend but the flu has caught DH and I think DD is going out in sympathy!

A slow but short trip to check the garlic crop after the brief rain last night was all that he could muster this morning and I can now hear snoring coming from the bedroom.

Scooping off the crackling

Last weekend we saved the lard from the sheep and during the week DH boiled it up and has made tallow. The crackling was scooped off the top and kept for our somewhat spoilt dog. This is the first time that he has done this as we have always be too busy. It is now neatly stored away for future use.
