October 18th 2017


The usual update of our market whereabouts over the next few weeks.  Rhiwbina every Friday morning, Usk and Cowbridge on Saturday and Riverside on Sunday mornings.  Next Saturday, the 28th Graham will be in Porthcawl and I get a Saturday off ☺.   

Usual range of meat on offer.

We have been making the most of the drier October.  John has been busy spreading our well composted farmyard manure on the silage fields.   The turnips are growing well - it has been really mild and even the grass is still growing.  The farms look amazingly green.  Luckily, we escaped the worst of storm Orphelia - the wind dried the surface of the ploughed field and enabled the forage rye to be sown in good conditions - it was a long day though and a seed drill upgrade is on the wish list for 2018 !  

Not looking forward to the clocks change - I don't like the early dark evenings.  It becomes a struggle to get anything done in the afternoons before it's feed time ...
