Charlie Roberts

Charlie and Veronika's adventure week four


2 August 2016

Sunday is Farmer's Market Day in Uxbridge so off we went. After setting up we chatted to customers and the other stalls. It was such a great day, so relaxed friendly and overall a lovely day. Our freezie pops went down a treat. :) Once we got home we had to cook a whole lamb that was left out of the fridge by Angela. While Veronika made a marinade for the chops. Charlie made a Moroccan stew for dinner. / V nedeli je farmarsky trh v Uxbridge, tak jsme s Angelou vyrazili. Po tom, co jsme vse prichystali, povidali jsme se zakazniky a ostatnima stankama. Byl to hrozne fajn den, relaxujici a pratelsky. ☺ Nase vyrobene nanuky byli fajn. Kdyz jsme prijeli domu, museli jsme uvarit hodne jehneciho masa jelikoz to Angela omylem vyndala z mrazaku. Zatim co Veronika marinovala neco, Charlie uvaril Morocky jehneci gulas. ☺
It was our day off on Saturday so we had a little lay in. We started day with testing freezie pops flavours for the Sunday market. In the end we ended up choosing Black tea with Rhubarb and honey and second flavour was Lemon balm with honey.☺ In the afternoon we went for a walk to the near lake but it turned out it is a private property so we didn't get very far. Charlie cooked lovely chicken curry for dinner. ☺ / V sobotu jsme meli den volna, tak jsme si trochu prispali. Zacali jsme den zkousenim prichuti na nanuky pro nedelni trhy na prodej. Nakonec jsme vybrali Cerny caj s rebarborou a medem a druhou prichut Medunka s medem. ☺ Odpoledne jsme sli na prochazku k jezeru akorat jsme zjistili nakonec, ze to jezero je soukromy majetek, tak jsme se daleko nedostali.

Friday we prepped the the ground and planted some strawberries. Then harvested some potatoes (dug up with our bare hands) beans and chillis and made sure they all looked good enough to sell. At 12 the farm opened and some people came. We sat and had lunch with them and talked. Its so nice to meet so many people and swap stories. Then we fed all the animals them had dinner and headed to the neighbours, Jennifer and Paul, such nice people we could of talked for hours.They also were both completely naked as they naturists but it wasnt a big deal as we were all getting along like a house on fire./ V patek jsme pripravili zahonek a zasazeli jahody. Potom jsme sli vyhrabat brambory, posbirat palivy papricky, fazole a pripravili vse na prodej. Od 12 do 5 je farma otevrena pro zakazniky. Dali jsme si s nima obed a povidali. Pak jsme se nakrmili zvirata a po veceri sli k sousedum na navstevu. Moc hodni lide, dalo by se povidat hodiny. Take jsou naturalisti, takze byli nahy,ale bylo to v poho.
Thursday it was the garlic's turn to be looked after. It needed cleaning and drying after the huge rain storm. After we finished the garlic we made a new entrance to the garden. We both had great fun cutting down trees to make a arched entrance. Once we finished we added a no entrance sign with a our own little influence. For dinner we had gnocchi which was surperb as the food always is. ☺/ Ctvrtek byl cesnekovy den. Cesnek potreboval cisteni a suseni po tom velkem desti. Po tom co jsme dokoncili tohle, udelali jsme novy vchod do zahrady. Museli jsme porazit par stromu a ted to vypada jen pohadkove s nasi skvelou ceduli. K veceri jsme meli Noky, coz bylo super jako vsechno jidlo tady. ☺
Wednesday was the seeding Kale morning. And then we started weeding zucchini. After lunch we finally had a swim in the swimming pool. We returned to weed more zucchini but half way it started raining a lot so we made an amazing coconut cake with Angela. When we all had dinner we went to see a building for sale and pick up evicted chickens from Angela's friend in Uxbridge. To finish the day we had a drink in a pub while listening open mike night guys. It was fun. ☺ / Ve stredu rano jsme sazeli Kale. A potom jsme se vrhli na plevelovani cuket. Po obede jsme si sli konecne zaplavat do bazenu. Vratli jsme se k vice plevelovani, ale zacalo prset a bourit, tak jsme misto toho upekli kokosovy dort s Angelou. Po veceri jsme vsichni jeli kouknout se na budovu na prodej pro Angeli vysnenou kuchyni. Den jsme ukoncili sklenickou vina v hospode, kde hrali a zpivali mistni. Byl to fajn vecer. ☺
Got up at 7 again. ☺ First thing in the morning we seeded kale in the first row of cabagges and then got other two rows ready for seeding the next day. Afternoon we cycled to put the Eggs sign up to the congestion 4 which we had to climb up. In the afternoon, Charlie and Angela went to pick up the hay that filled up the horse trailer. Good exercise putting it away ☺ Then we fed the animals with Lindsay to learn how to look after them. ☺ / Vstali jsme v 7. ☺ Prvni bylo na rade sazeni seminek na Kale v prvi rade a priprava na sazeni dalsich dvou rad na sazeni na druhy den. Odpoledne jsme jeli na kole na nedalekou krizovatku povesit ceduli na vajicka, coz jsme museli trochu lezt. Odpoledne Charlie a Angela jrli vyzvednout seno, ktere naplnilo privoz na kone. Bylo to fajn posilovani, kdyz jsme to ukladali dovnits do stodoly. ☺ Zakoncili jsme den pomahanim Lindsay nakrmit zvirata coz bylo bezva. ☺

On Monday we slept in a small carvan. (Scotty trailer) and it was very small and cute, until the storms came. But we survived :) so we got up ready for work at 8am and then we were shown around the garden and set to work weeding some cabbage patches. This was quite hard work as we havnt done manual labour in quite a while. After work we brushed the horses, cats, donkey and anything else that Veronika could brush. Then we went for a walk with Max the dog. ☺ / V pondeli jsme spali v malem karavanu. Bylo to male a roztomile dokud prisla bourka. Ale prezili jsme to. ☺ Vstali jsme a pripravili se na praci na 8 rano. Nejdriv jsme meli malou turu po zahrade, abychom vedeli, kde vsechno je a potom zacali plevelovat zeli. Je to docela tezka prace a to hlavne protoze jsme nedelali zadnou poradnou manualni praci pekne dlouho. Po veceri jsme kartacovali kone, kocky, oslika a proste vsechno co Veronika mohla kartacovat. Nakonec jsme sli na prochazku s psem Maxem. ☺
