We now have a very limited supply of socks for sale on our website but we still have stocks of our hand knitted hats and mittens so it is  worth looking to see what is on offer.

Still Raining

Really nothing of interest is happening.   The wet weather continues to stop all but the basics.   The chicken field is constantly water logged and the hen house is a muddy mess despite my best efforts.  Until the water table drops it is not likely to improve.

The dogs get very wet and muddy most mornings when they go for their walk round the farm and I try to confine them to the yard for the rest of the day because at least it is fairly mud-free and gives them a bit of space for a run around.

We still have some socks and hand kitted items available for sale.

Sunshine

Sunshine has occurred today - short bursts and I still got soaked this morning walking the dogs and sorting out the  chcikens.   When will it ever end?

I have not had anything to add to the blog recently because it has been one wet day after another and nothing much has been happening.

We have an extra dog on the farm now.  Dodger is sister to our Dolly, border collie.   He belongs to my friend Pauline who is currently not well enough to have him at home so he is here for  a while.  He has  been used to visiting us in the past for holidays so it has not unsettled him  to come and stay.
He is very very active and is really enjoying sloshing around the farm.

Pam who has knitted all the hats and gloves which we sold in our shop is now using up the last of our yarn .   It will probably take some time to sell because we are now (believe it or not) starting to come out of the season for buying woollies!!

Check the website for hand knits in 100% natural colour alpaca and 75% alpaca blended with wool in great dyed colours.

Mudbath

The heavy rain we have been having lately is turning the gateways and paddocks  which we are using into virtual mudbaths.  The winds and rain overnight were really concerning but this morning the sunshine has returned at least for the time being.

More storms are forecast for the week end.

We have four female alpacas alpacas for sale as we only want to keep a couple of males to guard the hens.  This is part of our retirement plan.   Eventually I expect the hens will go too but at the moment they are laying lovely eggs and we have quite a few regular customers.

Still Available

It has been very quiet since Christmas but it has been nice to just keep things running without having to worry about opening the shop.   I am keeping our websites live for the time being as I still have  a small stock of hand knits and alpaca socks.

Also there re  4 female alpacas available for sale as we only really need a couple to guard the hens who are still going strong and laying surprisingly well for  the time of year.
