Dal lan...

In the end, the ewe just wouldn't let the other lamb suck, so the ewe and the pink nosed lamb are now up the field, and the other poor little thing is in the barn being bottle fed... In this photo I am teaching him how to do it -- but he has got the hang of it now and is coming along well. We were going to put him back up the field this morning and then feed him up there but it is raining today and I didn't want him to have a miserable first day out...

Things are coming along in the greenhouse -- we have got kale, Brussels sprouts, two types of cabbage, various lettuces, early strawberries, and onions, and have just started melons, pumpkins, cucumbers, courgettes, basil, parsley, coriander, and dwarf French beans. Now we just need outdoors to cooperate a bit so we can start things outside! The rhubarb is nearly ready though...


Yes, that's right, you do see snow... Both Sunday and Monday mornings, we woke to a light coating of snow, but of course it was gone by midday...

I was researching Balwen's on the internet and found your blog. They are at the top of my possible breeds for the future for me and wondered is there anything to know that other websites don't tell you. Love the blog.

Tons I could tell you about them, but I don't know what you already have read elsewhere... Feel free to ask specific questions and I will do my best to answer. Have you ever kept sheep before? Whereabouts do you live?
