Cucumber Plants by Lost-in-the-day
Cucumber Plants
Some home grown cucumbers in the greenhouse. Thankfully the slugs haven't done too much damage to them, unlike my poor swedes and melons. 


Edit: Sorry the image is sideways, DA seems to be rotating the submission and I can't figure out how to stop it from doing that.

Cucumbers
Home grown cucumbers. Unlike most shop brought ones these have a lovely sweet smell when you cut them open.

Where do your eggs come from? by Lost-in-the-day
Where do your eggs come from?
Two of our ex-battery hens on re-homing day. Margo is at the top of the picture and Edith is below her. The term 'battery hen' isn't used much in the UK these days as hens are now in 'enriched cages' or 'barn raised' instead. But as you can see from their lack of feathers and the open wound on Margo's tail the conditions are still pretty awful.

These girls are only 18 months old. At the age of 18 months chickens are deemed to have passed the peak of their profitability and sent to slaughter. Now as backyard chickens they can expect to live to the proper age of 8 or 9 years. 


Please buy free range eggs and help put an end to the terrible conditions 'enriched cages' and 'barn raised' hens have to go through.

Our first free range egg
Ta-da! Our first free range egg from our 4 re-homed ex-battery hens. 

At the age of 18 months battery chickens are deemed to have passed the peak of their profitability and sent to slaughter. Now as a backyard chicken our girls can expect to live to the proper age of 8 or 9 years.

This is Gru by Lost-in-the-day
This is Gru
Meet Gru. She's one of 4 ex-battery hens we adopted in August. The term 'battery hen' isn't used much in the UK these days as hens are now in 'enriched cages' or 'barn raised' instead. But as you can see from her lack of feathers the conditions are still pretty awful.

Gru is only 18 months old. At the age of 18 months chickens are deemed to have passed the peak of their profitability and sent to slaughter. Now as a backyard chicken she can expect to live to the proper age of 8 or 9 years.

Email Contact- lostintheday @ hotmail.com

I love working with all kinds of materials from pencils, paints and inks to beads, clay and fabric. I am also constantly on the look out for ways to recycle old and unwanted materials into practical household items or beautiful pieces of art.


I accept commissions on a case by case basis depending on my current workload.

If you would like to commission a piece please email me at lostintheday @ hotmail.com (without the spaces) or note me here on DA to discuss what you'd like.
Interests
Hello everyone,
Apologies for the longer than planned absence, I didn't realise how time consuming moving would be. I am now in Durham safe and sound and desperately trying to finish sorting everything that needs sorting still.

There will be a lot of new art coming soon, I have a lot of pieces finished but not yet photographed and a whole lot more still in development but now that I don't have that pesky day job to suck up all my time and energy I will be able to work on these pieces daily.

Now that I have moved I will also be far more active in the Self-Sufficiency group :iconself-sufficiency: 
If you are interested in growing your own food and/or living a greener life please check it out.
