    Catching up! Loved your last few posts. Esp the photos of the Oast houses and hop pickers huts.
    How lovely sleep pillows sound although I’m sure the hops can make you sleepy in other ways ..Home brew anyone?

      Ha! I believe some homebrewing is going to happen, but not with my hops. I had them drying in the same room I was working yesterday, and I’m sure they were sending me to sleep. Although that could be attributed to the absence of “what can I have to eat?” prompts every 10 minutes, getting me on my feet on a regularly basis.

    WOW, this sounds so relaxing to have when rest is needed. Look forward to seeing the end product .
