Astrid, Rob and I got our first real taste of hard work on the site this weekend, as we spent hours and hours raking the earth to take the top layer of stones off the garden. It’s very hard to picture the place as our garden, but as we sat on the wall of the crawl-space, eating oranges and apple slices, we got a real feel for what it’s going to be like living in ‘the field’! The one thing that struck me most, was how lovely it was to work with the sound of the river in the background! No matter how back breaking it is, it’s just a beautiful place to be!
I didn’t take many pictures, too tired, too dirty, but here are just a few!
Wood arrives tomorrow I think!!
