...and I'm stuck inside studying for Wednesday's exam. In front of me I have the 110 page WSET study guide, the WSET specification, the Oxford Companion to Wine and Jamie Goode's book Wine Science. The guidance for this Unit is that you need to spend a minimum of 60 hours studying. So far I've spent just over 70 and feel I'm still weak on a number of topics such as pests in the vineyard and all the compounds in wine and their relative role and importance.
I'd like to be out in my veg plot turning it over in preparation for some early planting under cloches or even in the greenhouse sowing some more seeds. My tomatoes, peppers, basil, lettuce and rucola are all germinating but it's time to sow some other things.
It's as well I volunteered to do this Diploma and am enjoying it!
