Black gold. Not the Clampett kind. We have had these compost barrels for 15 years. They have a bottom compartment that collects all the juices from the barrel. After a while you can milk them for some amazing garden fertilizer. We attribute our garden success this year to this tea (it could just be dumb luck). It is comprised of almost a year’s worth of local veggie scraps. How could it not be delicious to the plants?
This video clearly captures what it is like to be me sometimes
My new name for my post-baby period is CSI: My Panties, because it’s like a crime scene down there.

Puzzlewood is an ancient woodland site, near Coleford in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. The site, covering 14 acres, shows evidence of open cast iron ore mining dating from the Roman period, and possibly earlier.
In 1848 some workmen, after moving a block of stone in the woods, found a small cavity in the rocks. In this cavity, hidden away, were three earthenware jars containing over 3,000 Roman coins. No-one knows why the coins were hidden away in the cliff face nor by whom.
J. R. R. Tolkien, a frequent visitor to the Forest of Dean, may have visited Puzzlewood, and many believe Puzzlewood was the inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle-earth, such as the Old Forest, Mirkwood, Fangorn or Lothlórien contained within The Lord of the Rings. J.K Rowling is also said to have visited Puzzlewood, and it may have been this that influenced her idea of The Forbidden Forest in the Harry Potter books.
