On the farm
It’s been lovely and frosty here over the last couple of days. For us this is the perfect opportunity to spread some muck on our land. This way the tractor and muck spreader don’t sink into the wet land and get stuck!

If we don’t get the frost, our muck store gets full before the land is dry enough in spring to get on it again with the tractor.

This has happened the last 2 years and we had to resort to making a lagoon in our yard to put the excess cow muck in! So you might not be impressed with the cold weather, but  we’re very grateful for it! We now have an empty muck store which makes us farmers very happy!

Whilst Thomas has been doing the “dirty” job of spreading muck, I’ve (Iris) been busy in the white room making another batch of vanilla and chocolate ice-cream. Thomas’ sister Margaret has helped me with it.

The chocolate ice-cream had been out of stock for a while so it’s been selling from the moment it came out of the ice-cream maker!
