Pond life and carding

more vintage machines from Lee Sharp on Vimeo.

We borrowed an old carding machine from Patrick and Michelle to make lighter work of carding all the fleeces; They still need a hand card to make rollags before spinning but the machine saves a lot of work.

Despite only being 5 weeks since we filled the pond it's already full of life - frogs and insects as well as some snails and fish we bought.

The symbiotic garden is doing well and at last we have some sun, though the storms and rain are ever present.
