On the Farm
Not a lot out of the ordinary has been going on this week. We’ve had cow calve and she had a beautiful heifer calf, so that’s great news! There are a few more cows due to give birth soon too.

The plants in the greenhouse have grown a lot! The squashes, courgettes and beans had outgrown their pots, so most of them have now been planted over into bigger pots. They will stay in pots until the weather allows us to plant them into the outside vegetable plot.

The onion sets and seed potatoes sown a few weeks back are starting to make an appearance.

We have also sown all our carrots, but they will be a bit longer before they will come up.

There are still quite a few seeds to sow, which we’ll hopefully get round to next week. (kale, spinach, turnips, parsnips, swede)

The weeds are also doing very well, so that will be another job to keep on top of that too!
