I know the weather is great now, and the last thing you want to think about is winter; but if like me, you live in the country and love to be very warm in the winter and not run out of solid fuel, this is the time to get it all ready.
Although it’s back breaking work and sounds old school, the sun and fresh air will make it worth while. Bringing picnic to the bog makes the task ahead less daunting. This is my first time turning “turf” and I must say, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be.
I learnt something new today; “bog cotton”. Who knew?….lol
