Blackberries

The weather forecasters say the summer will return next week. It's not cold and all our guests are still managing to find time for walking and soaking afterwards in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub anyway.
Bookings are still coming in with everyone grabbing those late summer breaks and enjoying the South Shropshire countryside. 
I hate to say it but 'Christmas' bookings are also being taken - even Easter next year!
What's new on Tugford Farm -

We've had to widen the road outside the farm house to get Wyndhams new combine up the road! Wyn wants to call it the Yellow Peril but I'm hoping it's more or a Buttercup which sounds generally less troublesome. 

Fetlock and Fearful - the hound puppies are doing fine and have been helping me (that questionable) to pick blackberries.

The damsons are ripening so we'll soon have to make Damson Gin which I'm a bit partial to.

I've been having jumping lessons on Coral, aka the baked bean. She thinks that every jump should be inspected before jumped and sometimes by me on a nose to nose basis!

We're improving but she's still very suspicious. It's not the height that bothers her but if it's different in any way it suddenly becomes very scary. I think we have a long way to go.

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!
