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!

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.
