Beautiful short film with narration adapted from excerpts from that haunting read ‘Heart of Darkness’ by Joseph Conrad.
I made a present for my family this Christmas, a photobook of the last three years or so… lots of memories and big occasions at last taken from the screen to be printed. It looks great and everyone is enjoying it.

2011 has been a good year in the garden at house244. We had a good harvest of potatoes, tomatoes, chard, walking stick cabbages, runner beans, lettuces, rocket, borage and peas, but the borlotti beans, carrots and sweetcorn were a little disappointing. In three years though we’ve established the veg garden well, and next year we plan to expand the veg beds into the other side of the garden (left in photo above), which will all be aided by the new greenhouse… which after many hours has resulted in the picture below, just need to put in the glass now… yeah rather important but at least the structure is up!
We finished another great Grow Zones season of visits in Oxford the other week. This season we’ve prepared ground for a chicken house and a greenhouse, there has been plenty of veg bed prep for the winter, with green manure sowed, and lots of tidying up.
The shared lunches have also been of a very high homemade standard. All round great fun and rewarding work, with lots of chatter and laughter along the way.
