Spring News

The hens and the Bantams are laying well again following the snow. We have a big Bartle hen that has to live with the Bantams, she was attacked by a dog that tore all the feathers and skin from her neck.I thought it had taken her head off. But she survived and has E.45 on her neck each day and suncream if its windy or sunny. She is very spoilt and both her and the bantams are helping keep the weeds down.
We have just taken an old cabin down, with the good wood left from that and one from my brothers we have built a garage/workshop, we're really pleased with it.
We have put the muck on the raised beds, planted Shallots, Onions, Garlic and early carrots. I have also planted some different sorts of Tomato seeds and some peppers as reccomended by the Saturday Telegraph. I have raked up leaves and bits of trees until my arms feel like they are dropping of. More news soon.
