Hope you have all had a wonderful few weeks :-) <3
It's been a while since i have found the time, and an adequate computer speed, to update this blog (sometimes it can take my tired computer about an hour to upload one photo!! :-)) but today we did it!!!....
above are some photos of the last few weeks taken around the farm...
and below..... the 'what we did' section!!....
let's see if i can still remember...!!
Lianne came to stay :-)... (she can be spotted in the photos :-))
Lianne, a student of Regional Development, is on a 5 week work placement from her university in Holland. She found our farm on the internet, and now she's here! It's amazing to think that people across the world can see our website and what we do!
So we've been working!! An extra pair of hands round here is a complete God send and has been taken full advantage of!!
We've been chopping down thistles in the new woodland/meadow planting, rescuing the vegetable garden from weeds, revamping the museum, serving teas and cakes in the cafe, planting crops, repotting plants, campsiteing, hiring bikes...and making craft things. In addition to which Lianne has also made a wonderful guide for the farm museum which i hope to upload to the website soon, detailing all of the items and their uses....something i can not imagine having found the time to do!.....thank you! :-) :-) xxxxxx
The work for the farm wind generator has begun :-) the base has been put down, the cables dug in and now the wind generator stand has arrived....just waiting for the blades and we're off!! It's such an exciting thing!! :-)
We've been felting... which i absolutely love! So far we have made some bags, and a hat :-) The bags are now available for sale at the farm and will be uploaded to the internet soon :-)
I attended my first campfire at the campsite :-) Thankyou very much to Fee and everyone for the invite...i had so much fun! :-)
and George and Anna have had a baby...a beautiful girl called Zara, so the farm now has a new addition :-)
and that's about all i can remember!! :-) :-)
lots of love to everyone :-) and best wishes from the farm :-) xxxxxx
