While I did this Doug has built the stand for the water tank we were recently given so it has been a very fruitful day.
When Doug's nephew came to visit a month or so ago they gave us a chilly bin full of meat and amongst it was what we thought was a part leg of pork. I got it out of the freezer a few days ago and it was actually bacon so, yesterday, I boiled it. We can't remember the last time we had boiled bacon (before we met for both of us) and it was very good indeed.
Of course, now that we , almost, have the new tank connected we were told last night to expect a wet summer. Not too wet I hope but it will be good if we don't have to water the garden every day.
