Darel and Rosella

Darel and Rosella, from Rome, left for London today after wwoofing with us for almost 2 weeks. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work on the farm and in the house, especially bringing in the hay (see last entry), transplanting leeks, and making tiramisu!
