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.

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.
