Contributing to the Mess 

I know it’s really hard to impose discipline on the troups in a blog like this so this is as unruly a contribution as anyone elses.

I’m coming up by train on Friday – supposed to get to Darlington at 13.13 – haven’t checked the buses to Richmond and beyond yet but I’m going to need a lift from somewhere mid afternoon. I’m coming back on Monday – have to be at Darlington also at 13.13 (worrying number of 13s in this).

On a different subject – Gareth, please bring Billingsgate Market with you or the contents anyway.

Zeb – where are you up to on einkorn? I have some einkorn grain (you probably gave it to me), some kamut grain and kamut meal, some grunkern grain and meal, and some emmer meal. Do you want me to bring any of this with me? Has Joe built the grain mill yet or should I grind it before I come? Plus, I’m hoping to bring as little as possible on the train, could you get the odd kilo of maize meal when you stop off in Northampton and I’ll pay you for it.

Finally, I’m assuming there will be starter available so I don’t need to bring any.

Going to be a great weekend – I quite like mud – it will remind me of North Wales.

Best wishes to everyone.
