Springtime

The warm sunshine (between the showers) is turning every thing green or yellow (where the oil seed rape is growing). From the top of the Brown Clee Hill the patchwork of fields is becoming ever more interesting as farmers plant their spring crops and the trees and hedge rows burst into life. We have nearly finished lambing with the last few still in the building but the rest are out on the fields. We had a very busy two days drenching, injecting and checking all the ewes and lambs but we had extra help in the form of old friends Nick and Jane from Nottingham. It's been a long time since Nick did any farming but he was brilliant and between us, as they say 'many hands make light work' So a big 'Thank you' to them.

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!
