This morning we harvested some more Elder Flowers, the sun was shining, it was great!
The company had some bad news today in that the lady who runs the tincture department had fallen down some stairs and badly hurt her neck. She will be off work for a couple of months atleast, which means that no-one will be in the tincture department which is a bad thing considering it’s peak harvest season!
Christina did say when we first got here that she would be happy to be trained in a few things so that when the lady was on holiday or sick for a short while she could cover for her by being able to tincture the fresh herbs. The company seems to be thinking they will get someone in part time, but we’ll see what happens.
We’re going to Cornwall this weekend we think, to see a couple of friends, and we’re going to sleep in the car somewhere on the coast along the way!
