Is fear of spiders a world wide thing? I think so but I wonder why some people are terrified of spiders and others will pick them up and carry them outside. Which are you?
I am of the latter variety.
This time of year the spiders are spinning their webs everywhere. Overnight they can cover a doorway in their delicate needle work.
My track to the Other Side is lined with reeds and this time of year I have to wave a stick in front of me to break the webs as I walk along. They build these strong webs from one side to the other. And I can hear the little spiders sigh as I pass through and they quickly start all over again in my wake.
I imagine their disgust when all they catch is me in their beautiful knitting. I am endlessly washing webs out of my hair. I don’t mind really but I would rather not go to the supermarket with spiders riding along on the sleeve of my jacket.
Today I am meeting with a man who grows grains of all kinds and mills them into flours. This meeting is part of my search for local pig feeds. When he switches from grinding one grain to another he has a short run of overlap where the grains get mixed. This is unsellable and is considered a byproduct. So I am doing some investigation.
One mans byproduct can become another woman’s pig food. Or at least a component on her pigfeed.
He tells me he has a small pellitiser (sp) that we can experiment with. Today will be interesting.
I hope you have a lovely day.
I am having such trouble loading pictures from either my phone or the camera onto WordPress using my computer. I get the photos in there but they take hours to load onto the page. I cannot work out the problem. So I am writing and publishing this post from the WordPress app. It is useful but limited.
