This is a lovely story of bread and community.
I’m hosting a nature connection day in the woods tomorrow, using the sweet chestnut tree as an introduction to forest bathing and mindfulness. We are focusing on some amazing veteran trees that may be up to 450 years old. Majestic beauties.
Using all our senses we will explore the woodland, and this of course includes taste; we will make astringent tea from the leaves and share some chestnut flour bread.
My bread making skills are no match for the incredible guys at @poptibeast who conveniently make bread (among other tasty treats) just up the road from me. And they happily accepted the challenge (and my packet of organic chestnut flour) and the results are in: freshly baked bread just metres from my house, still warm.
I can barely wait until tomorrow to share it with my @woodlandwomen.
Things are growing in a different direction and we’re excited to share what we’ve been up to. On our farm its been blooming and now we’re seeing our tiny seedlings turn into great and tasty things. Here’s a herbal tea we made from herbs grown gingerly right here on the farm, in Wales!
So thankful for my husband. At 71 he should be retired but instead he teaches yoga five days a week and works with me everyday. He packs crowns and goes to the post office and UPS six days a week. Tonight we spent a relaxing evening #forestbathing (as he calls it) in our screened lounge. Thank you Michael. You are appreciated. #tinycabin#cabinlove
Day 4: I have been busy collecting fiddleheads. They are delicious fried with some butter. It helped pass the time and the steps up the steep sections but in the end they became “my pets” per Dave and I only used them to clean up our pot after curry.
We hiked another 10 miles with a gentle slope from our camp. Rolling hills, pasture, pine forest that smelled like my childhood in #colorfulcolorado . The last 5 miles held 1800’ elevation gain and that made me dig deep and count allowing a rest at 500 steps. You fell asleep hard and I like to keep walking during your naps to help them lengthen but I just had to rest. You didn’t wake when I transferred you to the log perfectly placed at my hip level. I then sat next to you and #forestbathed . Your dad was lost in his steps and walked right past us until I whistled. The pause and total presence we find when following our feet slowly up a steep climb. There was limited water in our packs by the end of it and your dad had to run down an intersecting road 4 miles to fetch it. While he was searching for the stream, you and I set up camp. You busied yourself finding all the rocks and sticks within arm’s reach while I put up the tent. An OR truck drove up asking for directions which I barely provided “This is the PCT.” in return I asked for water. She had a glass bottle of Perrier I poured into my #hoardingmarmot#nalgene and was careful to not shake as I walked. There is always humor during times of challenge.
Perfect perfect #madrivervalley day!
