We've had a busy week here on the farm with much of the workforce away on holiday. It's been bitterly cold which didn't help the outdoor work, but the boys coped admirably.
The sheep are fed up with not having any spring grass and become terribly discontent. The hogs escaped from their indoor quarters and found themselves able to associate with the ewes, giving us another job to do of sorting them all out, one we could have done without.
Unfortunately we can't do anything about the weather ( or probably a good thing ) but it is making life increasingly more difficult. Thankfully we have plenty of hay and silage still, but the animals become restless and prefer some juicy grass at this time of the year.
The chicken got into the tunnel during the week and devastated the lettuces, mutilated 50% of the spring cabbages, I was not a happy bunny, everything is already very scarce so I could have well done without that happening.
The shop has remained busy, some holiday makers around, and all my faithful regulars. A full house today for lunch, which was chicken and broccoli in a creamy delicious sauce, garlic potatoes, baked carrots and leeks, savoy and peas cooked in butter, followed by Banoffie pie with clotted cream.
We also had a large catering event on this week, so, just another normal week at Fionas Farm Fayre, and an unexpected baby calf just to finish the week off, the weekend is still to come!!
