Work continues in the house and on the land

Brigitta, a carpenter and vegan cook, stayed for three weeks in June.  She continued work on constructing the kitchen and made fabulous vegetarian dishes with produce from the garden.

before mixing it with sand and flour glue
for rendering a wall in the house.
