Just a quick update on our market whereabouts this weekend.  Rhiwbina on Friday. Usk and Cowbridge on Saturdayand Riverside on Sunday.  The usual range of produce on offer.  Then it's Porthcawl next Saturday.  


We still struggle with the harvest. We still haven't had more than 2 consecutive dry days.  We had a very busy Sunday making the arable silage and grass haylage - wrapping bales in the dark til 11.45 is no fun !!   Then I couldn't get to sleep as my head was still going round in time with the bale wrapper !!   Having another sessiontoday but not so many bales - 40 as opposed to 130 ! 

The oats are ripening fast at Fforest - the combine has been greased and is ready to go as soon as we get that sunshine.  We are hoping the weathermen  will be accurate this time with their forecast dry spell next week.    

2 litters of piglets at Cefn Coed - will post a picture on facebook - look out for the hen who has her own interpretation of "free range" !
