Hello

 Hello
Its been so long since I last spoke to you all. Well everything in the orchard is very green after having  had so much rain. The call ducks love it and the hens in the orchard hate it, they dash as fast as their little legs can into the nearest house or under one of the apple trees. Although we have had a very wet summer so far everything is doing very well. We have had lots of baby Call ducks, a couple of Quails and cute little frizzle bantam chicks. The kitchen garden is giving us abundance of tasty vegetables it is so lovely walking down past the orchard to pick fresh vegetables, it makes all the hard work earlier on in the year worthwhile. The hay-meadow was cut last week having just enough time in-between rain showers to get it cut, turned the next day and baled up.

  1. Hello Sarah. I just wanted to stop by and say "Hello" and thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. I joined yours as well and glanced through to see your wonderful garden and animals. Everything looks so green and lush compared to my pitiful lot of tomatoes. This is the first year of such a small garden since my husband became sick. We are lucky to have enjoyed 43 years of fresh garden produce, and are thankful for that. Come back and visit me anytime. Have a good week.
