A Success After Failure
I had a big success this week,
something I have tried a few times and failed
Butter not just any butter which I have made many times, this butter is made from our own goats milk 😁goat milk butter is white rather than yellow it took 1 pint of cream that was collected over a few days.
Martin was putting the finishing touches to a chicken house and run
for the Ross Cobb table birds.
I have been trimming back the grape vine and thinning out the bunches
I have reduced the vine down to 20 bunches, I might reduce them down further, its about quality rather than quantity and reducing the bunches means bigger and juicer grapes.
The peas in the poly tunnel are cropping well
another harvest for tonight's dinner has brought this seasons harvest up to 1kg so far and there is plenty more to come yet.
Can you see what I see
Mama dove is on top of the dovecot, daddy dove is on the house roof and if you look you can see 2 young doves who are almost ready to fledge, The doves have had a hard time with the buzzard this adult pair keep trying to raise young last time they were successful in raising one that fledged and was finding it wings when the buzzard stuck and it was RIP baby dove.
I am hoping there is plenty of other food around for the buzzard and he leaves these alone to become adults.
