Catching Up

At last the weather is being kind to us.   Mike has been able to cut the grass in two of our paddocks and I mowed the paddock behind the house where I train the dogs for agility.  Up until now everything has been so wet that it has been impossible to mow.

Unfortunately the topper on the tractor kept getting clogged up with the damp grass and so there are small piles of cut grass everywhere.   Every time I walk through the effected areas I kick down the piles so that they dry as hay and do not ferment and become dangerous for the alpacas.  It will soon level out and the fresh grass will make better grazing.

The hens are laying well and the eggs are selling really well at the moment.

Mike and Nick are in the process of re-roofing all our field shelters so a run of fine weather will make their job much easier and safer.
As well as knitwear and socks we also have a selection of throws, bags and hats from Peru and I am in the process of putting them on the website.  Up until now they have only been available in the shop.
