Here I am again a couple of weeks since I last posted. The time has flown by and much has happened and been achieved, especially in the vegetable gardens, which are now looking pretty good. David has nearly finished the pallet-wood fence, which will keep the dogs off the gardens and tidies up between two spaces
.Here is one of the reasons we have started to get on top of the gardens... grandchildren!
Does anybody know why I am no longer following Frugal Queen? Have I missed some change?
More importantly, where has the lovely Weaver gone? She normally posts daily, but hasn't done so for well over a week. Her wonderful posts are missed.
When we were in Cornwall for a spot of sea fishing the blasted fox paid us a call. He dug his way through our (substantial) defences and slaughtered 13 hens. My granddaughter, who was looking after the smallholding, found them on her morning rounds. I feel so sorry for her, it must have been an awful sight! We have spent many hours beefing up the fencing and have changed how we lock up at night to add an extra layer of defence. Fortunately the hens have been in the orchard run and not ranging over the whole holding for three weeks as the gardens are being planted up or it could have been even worse.
If anybody tells me that foxes have to live I will not be responsible for my language!
Just been out to gloat over the veggie gardens (the rest are in an awful state) and see that the b****y rabbits have trimmed the early pea row!
Need to go out and net the peas now.. back soon.
P.S I have been nominated for the leibster award thingy. Hope there is not a time restriction on responding, which I will do soon.
