Scenes from the Farm

Today a few pictures of the farm coming to life in the sunshine the other day. This morning there is a hint of rain in the air, hopefully it will vanish and the sun will be back. But we are in the middle of Autumn now and the farm is winding down.
~ Our landlord managed to get this field of Oilseed Rape harvested in the glorious sunshine over last weekend, and now all the fields are flat and some are bare. In others the stirrings of life, as overwintering crops show their faces to the fastly diminishing sun and hours of daylight.

Lovely Hubbys' worm beds, where once there was one, now there are two. Well, when you've got 50,000 worms breeding away they quickly need more accommodation.
~
This was the pigs outdoor area by the barn, their overwintering quarters last year when the mud got too bad for them to stay in the orchard. It's hard to imagine it as the bare dug up earth it was then, Mother Natures' amazing power of rejuvenation.
~
Our tractor still with fence post knocker attached, after LHs' hard work of last week, putting up the fencing in the Paddock.

My wellies.....finally free of mud after a long doggie walk across the dew laden fields. Now the dogs are snoring contentedly on their sofa, and I have time for a coffee and a quick Blog catch up, it's lovely to read what everyone's up to.

What are you doing today, whatever it is I hope you have a lovely one.

  3. Hi Sue. Lovely to see all the farm goings on. I have been doing family history research today. Gone back 5 generations so far. Its fascinating finding out what your ancestors got up to. Have been updating my blog too as I have been away and we now have kitchen fitters in!! Mess everywhere. Will check your diet now! Ann x
