Summer & Early Winter 2018(December 10, 2018)
Well, what with Brexit nationally and Broxit here, we seem to have been rather busy.
What a fabulous summer. To step outside every morning to warmth and sunshine was a very special time. We don't suffer too badly in a drought as our heavy clay soil comes into it's own with regard to water retention. However, the classic huge cracks appeared in the fields, so we were able to push a notched stick down to see if we could beat the record.
Straw was in short supply so our usual customers had to share the spoils a bit this year. We have had a busy year at the cottage. In spite of offering 'full weeks only' it has all been worthwhile. A new grandson made time even more precious and changeovers after only 3 nights makes for hard work in the cottage, not to mention the garden.
We had a nice new shiny tractor to get used to, but the youngsters were soon boss of it. Not sure about the Boss though.
I keep thinking I will retire, but mainly repeat bookings keep coming in for 2019 so here we go again!
