Enamel fire pits - simple solutions

Outdoor kitchen visits Humble by Nature

Photo1604forblogtopgateThe outdoor kitchen visited Humble by Nature Farm last month, specifically to inspect the Humble Hideaway shepherds camp.

Certainly Woods and Kotlich cooking

photo-certainly_woodfbtopblog  Visiting Certainly Wood a fortnight ago, I thought I was on the set for a sci fi film.

Wooden crates of Kiln dried logs were stacked 5-6 high forming narrow "streets" where I expected some space craft to swoosh around the corner any minute. The bright July sun is used to preliminarily dry the logs which are sorted according to tree species, Oak, Ash, Beech and Birch
