‘S e comann de dhaoine a tha fuireach am Fairlie agus bailtean mu chuairt an Siorrachd Ŕir, Alba a th’ annainn. Tha sinn le chčile an geall gum bi sinn a’ sireadh beatha nas fhallain agus nas leantail le a bhith a’ toirt piseach air an t-ŕireannach troimh dhiofair dhňighean-obrach. Tha sinn air gŕrradh meanbh-chuibhreannach ŕlainn, sŕmhach a stčidheachadh air talamh-fhŕsaich thrčigte, thruaillte far am faodar, a-nis, daoine lios beag aca fhčin ŕiteachadh le dňighean mar compostach agus ‘vermi-culture’ (sin a’ cleachdadh boiteagan airson todhar a dhčanamh). San lŕrach-lěon gheibhear bhidio a’ sealltainn  an gŕrradh an-diugh, dealbhan dheth rč na h-obrach, grunn CŔBHA air compostach agus ‘vermi-culture’, sanasan agus naidheachdan air thachartasan.

Mar as tric, bidh cuideigin a-staigh feasgar as t-samhradh agus aig deireadh-seachdain. Ma tha sibh a’ tighinn air astar neo mu tha sibh nur bhuidheann mňr lůigeadh sinn gun cuireadh sibh fios thugainn. Le sin, bhiodh cothrom againn dčanamh cinnteach gum biodh cuideigin ann a shealladh timcheall sibh (agus gum faigh sibh strůpag!).

Seo am ‘poly-tunnel’ ůr againn meadhan an t-samhraidh le pěoban-uisge a th’ air a bhith na chuideachadh mňr dhuinne.


polyt2_2.jpg

  Seo an dŕrna ‘poly-tunnel’ againn (84 t. de fhad) le pěoban-uisge os a chionn trě sreathan de fheannagan. Dh ’abaich an t-uamhas de ghlasraichean an sin- tomŕtoan, peapagain, cularain, sůbhan-lŕr, biotais,snčapan,basail, poinearan ,maois, piobaran, mearagan-bheag, piobaran-tiolaidh, creamhag agus aubergine agus chan e sin uile e! Cha mhňr nach iarraidh tu neach-iůil do thoirt troimh an tunail!
