Time For A New Venture
I showed you yesterday that Martin was building some new accommodation in the field,
the shed is now occupied all part of new venture
This morning we drove over to pick up these
2 Red Bourbon turkey poults and 10 Norfolk Bronze turkey poults.
I reserved them just over a month ago when they were still in there eggs, although the big one on the right is a bit older than the others, I have been updated on there progress from when they first pipped there eggs, they have been off heat for over a week now and are nice and sturdy little things.
They will be raised for the Christmas table and depending on how it goes I might keep a trio for future batches.
While Martin was putting finishing touches to there run this afternoon I took up the last of potatoes from the tunnel, I needed the space, the potatoes were only half a dozen small runts left over from planting in the main bed.
I took up 15lb this afternoon we have already had about 5lb so not a bad harvest from runts
I worked out it would have cost about £10 to buy them from the shop
I also picked some more courgettes we are having them roasted in our own rendered lard with some beetroot that I also picked
the leaves I shall wilt in the pan after I have fried the pheasant breasts we are having, the pheasant Martin picked up as road kill, all served with new potatoes a very cheap meal that has cost just pence.
