The cows have gone on holiday for the summer to our friend Sallys house. They have grass up to their backs and its hard work being a cow, you have to eat and sleep all day. 

The turkey poults have arrived ready for christmas. We have 25 this year, so if any of our readers would like a turkey please reserve  yours now to avoid disappointnent. We had such huge demand last year we could have sold twice the amount. 

We have also got another six meat chicks  to help stock the freezer up, hopefully by the end of the year we will have raised 18 for the freezer.

The garden is coming on well, the flower bed in the back garden has been im bloom since february. We have a huge array of perenials which are increasing year on year. Most the lavender is in flower and the dahilas are stunning. Mum was given a really pretty french lavender plant with white ears for her birthday, its so pretty. 

We also have the most magnifiscent arum lillies. I must take a photo and post tomorrow. 

Most if the potatoes are in flower so i hope soon we will be earing Furzedown Spuds.

The pumpkins/marrows/squashes are doing well i keep watering them and fingers crossed soon we can enjoy
Picking and  eating our crop.

The sheep are all well, mum is busy checking them at three other locations. She had a scare with Fred earlier in the week, he didnt come when he was called  and the grass is so long Mum
Couldnt see him. She is also really scared of Fred and his mate David the jacob, they always see Mum as a butting post. 

So she had to drive home to collect my brother to only find out Fred was in a really deep sleep enjoying the sun. Silly boy!

The horses are living out at the moment they are having a lovely time and are as fat as butter. 

We are making sausages next weekend, so an early start on Tuesday delivering pigs to the abbatoir. 

Im off to bed now i will share the lilly photo tomorrow. 

Over and out
