Saturday 17th January

First snow of this winter with us yesterday. The farm looked very pretty first thing with a clear sunny day. Thankfully it didn’t stay too long, it has now been replaced with rain and strong winds. Extra rations for the sheep and chickens in this harsh weather. Have started to sort through seeds, throwing away old seeds ( chickens get those) and cataloguing what we have and making notes. All of last seasons memories come flooding back, the winners and loosers the highs and the lows. It is an exciting time and I look forward to placing my orders next week if all going well. After that Harry and I will be getting on with the pruning of fruit trees and bushes. This is a job we really enjoy, we did a big overhaul last year, so in general they are in good condition, and will only need a trim here and there.

A reminder that we will be at Spa this Saturday, but not the following two. Back on 7th February. And no we are not going to the Bahamas!
