The beds are staked off and I look forward to seeing if anything has sprouted in a couple of days.
Ideally, this will grow well enough that learn the entire process of turning flax into fibre - from the seed to spinning. Below is the wet-weather pond (which would be great, I think, for retting, except that it tends to disappear in mid-summer) and team of oxen I used for my field work ;-)
Eventually, this field will be home to Icelandic Sheep!
