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.

What a great weekend we had with a fantastic family full of fun, adults and children alike. The weather was pretty good and enabled the children to play with Widget and our new puppy 'Tipsy' in the garden. It was great as the puppy just played or slept! As I type she's trying to help! The children also had lots of fun in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub occasionally letting their parents in. Have a look at some of the smiling faces with Widget and Tipsy on the main blog page. Farming news: We have fields full of ewes and 'getting larger everyday' lambs. The rain which was so desperately needed arrived and has given everything a boost so the grass is now growing well. Talking to neighbouring farmers when we were herding their two cows, which had escaped onto our top field, the general feeling was that the spring crops will definitely have been affected by the lack of rain at the crucial time of planting but that's farming for you so the ever changing challenges keep coming.
