Day 236

5.2mm of rain has fallen in the last few hours, topping up the tanks once again and giving the rest of our backyard a great soaking.  I had to dash out in the rain to grab some produce for tonights meal and some herbs for tomorrow.

I have a new local butcher who stocks goat meat.  I haven't had much of a chance to try it, so inspired by a co-workers recipe I am marinating a shoulder of goat in white wine, EVOO, Garlic and some amazingly fragrant herbs from the patch.  We'll slow wet roast it tomorrow and see how it goes.  

I picked parsley,  rosemary and thyme and they smell beautiful.  The rosemary has beautiful purple flowers at the moment as well.  It must be nearly spring.
