I'm sure there is a page somewhere to find out about acceptable behaviour when it comes to blogging. For example, I've added a list at the side of my blog now of some of the blogs I read. Should I mention to the people who own those blogs that I've done so? Seems only like good manners. I'll have to find the time to contact them all or leave comments for them or something like that.
In other news, there is no other news. Have been laid up with a bad cold (it's much too early in the year for that kind of nonsense!) so got very little achieved over the weekend. Did make it to the market though and stocked up on some delicious sweetcorn which I've blanched and frozen so that I'll have some over the next month or so.
Very big freezer is one thing that needs to be added to my list of things I'll need when I eventually have my own place and want to start really living locally. There's such a short growing season in Ireland really that it'll be important to learn how to preserve stuff properly as well as freezing. Liz from Pocket Farm and Katie from Simple Katie both talk about canning stuff (although I think that's an American term for preserving as their photos are always of jars of stuff rather than cans. Or maybe it's called canning over here too and I just know nothing about the subject!) and I think that's something to aim for so that fruit and veg are available in winter as well. There's not much point in trying so hard to eat locally during the summer and then falling back on flown for miles food in winter.
