Been a busy week with "The Staff" on holiday !!  Neil, the butcher has been to Barcelona and Ffi has jetted off to a wedding in the Dominican Republic of all places!    We have muddled along and, somehow, we have our usual range of delicious meat to bring to the markets on the weekend.  Rhiwbina on Friday, Usk and Tonteg on Saturday and Riverside on Sunday.  

 

The farms are looking good - the grass is growing, the arable crops look well and we are all champing at the bit to cut grass for hay or haylage.  Weather is not settled enough for that .....  Lambing has finally finished - that last ewe popped her lamb out with no fuss at all  - 10 days after we thought we might have finished !
