September Bliss

Everyone but us is combining! Our corn is just not quite ripe enough and so we wait. It'll all come together when it does.

We lost Widget this morning only to find her curled up on Wyndhams dirty washing in the laundry room - Lovely!

Philip has one week left at home before he heads off to St Albans to start his new job. He's just worked his last shift ever for The Ludlow Catering Company. I'm sure Willem and Pippa will really miss him.

The fat boys, Roy and Ben (horses) are looking a little less fat and being exercised each day. They are really pleased to be back in work and hang around the gate in the mornings until I come to get them.

Coral aka The Baked Bean (horse) is working well and has recovered from her goat climbing expedition in The Brecon Beacons. A long story!

One of my main aims this week is to get out and pick loads of blackberrries which are laden in the hedge rows around the farm together with the apples from the orchard should, if I get round to it, result in some nice apple and blackberry crumbles.

Harvesting is over! The combine was brought home last night after a very testing end to the summer. The planting of next years crops now begins in haste before the ground gets too wet to work. The horses winter beds are down in the stables waiting for them to come in at night as soon as it drops too cold or wet and the logs are being loaded into the log shed ready for the log burner in Meal House and the farm house to keep us all warm. The Jacuzzi comes into its own during the winter months. It's the time I like to use it most. Everyone has suddenly started cooking roast dinners and puddings and the salad bowl is to be found at the back of the cupboard. We still have guests booked in with their horses enjoying the Autumnal colours and changing vista of the Brown Clee Hill and as long as you have your wellies or walking boots there's a host of fabulous walking out there. As we head towards Christmas our rates become such great value so why not grab a weekend away and curl up by that log burner in Meal House or jump in the Jacuzzi and watch the steam rise!
