Autumn Watch at Tugford

It is the sunniest of days here today in Tugford but the cooler nights are an indication of the coming cooler weather they say is on it's way. Wyndham has about 40 acres of wheat left to plant and so he is very busy from dawn to dusk trying to get it done before the rain comes.

Tonight is Tugfords' Harvest Festival in St Catherines Church and so ourselves and some of our resident guests will be gathering to sing in the harvest later this evening.

Widget and Big Bill are extremely well, however, Widget is on house arrest from Monday to Friday, 9.00am  to 5.00pm to stop her from visiting the local builders working down the road. I don't think they are employed to throw sticks and balls for Widget even though she clearly thinks differently!

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!
