|Happy Baba Marta Day! This is a 'Martenitsi'|
|2 more twins, these for Myfanwy. We are now all lambed out.|
|Hi-rise nesting for these two chooks, who are|
currently laying their eggs 5 feet up my straw
stack. At least they are safe from sheep hooves
So, we now have 3 ewes and 3 sets of twins - two sets of ewes and one of ram lambs. 9 sheep. It is beginning to look like a flock. We are fortunate that it is not any bigger as we are decidedly short of grass so we are having to supplement feed with the lamb 'crunch' (a mix of grains and molasses) and hay. This has led us to a decision to bring the whole operation round a few months LATER next winter. We will not get the ram in till November, so that we can lamb in April/May rather than Feb/March, by which time, we hope, the grass will have started to move.
|Good vigorous ferment still going in the 'hedgerow' wine.|

|Six inches of good compost goes over the potatoes in the|
poly-tunnel raised beds. Feed the soil and the soil will.....
Ah well, wish Lily a 'get well soon' and happy thriving growth to all the little kindergarten members. Health too, to the Mums.
