My apologies!   Following on from Alison’s comment I thought I ought to write a post to let you know I’m alive and well just really busy although I have decided to try and tone down how much time I spend on the computer. This year is flying by and we’ve limped through silage-making, completely missed hay-making […](image)

Since the last time I caught up and, if you remember, was kicked in the boob, I’ve had even more beating-about farm-wise.  On Gordon’s birthday at the beginning of October we turned our new bull Felix in with the main herd (not because it was Gordon’s birthday, but just because Felix is coming up to four years’ […](image)

Long Time Gonelavenderjack

July!  And now it’s almost the end of September.  Sorry.   Whilst I’ve been gone we’ve done more silage-making, the company putting in many acres of solar panels have almost finished, we have our own array on the new barn roof (that’s new roof, not new barn), Gordon bought a new (second-hand) tractor, mower and […](image)

Bishops and BeeslavenderjackDSCN8387DSCN8389DSCN8399DSCN8403DSCN8416DSCN8443DSCN8476DSCN8488DSCN8494

Hasn’t it been hot this month?  Terri and I have been out and about courtesy of Groupon (discounted tickets) and our first port of call was the Bishop’s Palace in Wells.  We’ve lived near Wells all our lives but never been around the Palace or gardens even though we’ve walked around the outside many times.  I’m not really […](image)

Silage-making is once more upon us.  Gordon and Dan worked hard and sorted out the gearbox on the newer of our two foragers, getting it ready for action last Thursday.  The older one requires a pump originally sent off for repair in Scotland, but it came back with an incorrect shaft fitting so had to go […](image)

The Best Laid Planslavenderjack20160525_17425620160525_173223

We’ve switched bulls again and sadly Floyd went off to market on Monday along with three barren cows.  They were taken in a lorry but Dan went to the sale in the afternoon to see how they did.  Quite well, is the answer although Dan was quite sad when he came home.  This is why Gordon and I […](image)

Remember a couple of weeks ago we had that big storm overnight?  It took the roof off one of our sheds!  We woke up at about 4.30/5 o’clock-ish to a banging, flapping noise and Gordon jumped out of bed to go to the window, but it was too dark to see anything. Neither of us […](image)

Happy EasterlavenderjackDSCN7507DSCN7511DSCN7590DSCN7644DSCN7661DSCN7666DSCN7685

I don’t really celebrate Easter, but thought I should wish you all a happy one, just in case you do.  Farming tends to rely more on the seasons than what ‘holiday’ we’re celebrating at the time.  The cows don’t know it’s Easter and still insist on being milked every day so we plod on. We’re busy […](image)

A month onlavenderjack

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 11:21:36 +0000

I had an email to remind me that I haven’t posted for a month and debated whether to call it a day on my blog.  Obviously I reached a decision and it looks like you might be stuck with me for a little while longer so I hope that’s ok? Since I last posted we […](image)

Scaredy catlavenderjack

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 17:05:53 +0000

As you may recall we currently have four cats: Cinders, Thomas, Gizmo and Scamp.  Cinders and Thomas are both fairly advanced in years and have perfected the art of getting we humans to open the door for them rather than exert themselves by going through the catflap.  Of course if there’s no human to hand […](image)
