hi

Just the usual update on our market whereabouts  -  Rhiwbina as usual on Friday mornings, Usk on Sat and Graham will be in Tonteg, Riverside on Sunday.  Next weekend, it's Caerphilly on Sat - 10th.  Usual range of produce on offer although I am struggling on time for pies ....

 

Lambing has started - there have been the usual trials and tribulations at the beginning but we seem to be through those now.  Hopefully the weather will allow the oldest ones to go out into the field next week  - currently, the silo between the cattle sheds has become a maternity unit with lots of lambs playing happily in the warm and dry.  

 

Otherwise, the daily chores of feeding, cleaning out and strawing sheds for cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and laying hens take up most of the day - and don't forget the horses which Ffi and I seem to spend ALL of the time looking after them rather than actually riding them.  Roll on the spring ....
