Thank you everyone for all good wishes. The day went very well, lots of sunshine, food , and booze, and dancing until after midnight. Friends went home with bunches of flowers. Family went home with wedges of cake.  I need sleep now, before we head to Cornwall for a minimoon. I may need Verduns  cabin. Photos later when we have a chance to sort them.

I'm off to fetch the wedding cake and additional pork pies for the evening finger buffet. The caterers have been warned that out lot can consume an awful lot of food, especially when someone else is paying.

Himself wanted to have a pirate themed wedding. Mainly so he could get his sister to get dressed up as a serving wench.

Nettle tea is high in nitrogen and good for leafy greens and brassicas. Comfrey is better for fruit as it has more potash.

Pat, can you smuggle a bottle of Penfolds port. The eec wont allow it to be sold here, because its not made in Portugal.
