Friday! Yay!

Sliding slope

Back in the mists of time, I read that Swiss farmers who had fields/pastures on steep slopes…

Slope moss

…monitored the effects of gravity, and when too much soil had crept downhill, they dug it up and moved it back uphill, so as not to lose it to the owner of the next field/pasture downhill. Farming is tough. [Moss has a relatively limited root system, so it’s almost a cheat to show the creeping soil under moss….]

Simmer burner

In my private world of kitchen experimentation, I’m making broth from the chicken leg bones from the other day’s bake…using the simmer burner for the first time. Burble. Pause. Burble.

Yard pig

And for Friday fun: a yard piglet. Winsome.
