Country Diary for week ending 10th June 2013

It was a busy week on the farm as we sowed oats for the hay to feed the horses and goats.  We killed weeds, raked the seedbed, picked up stones, then sowed, harrowed, rolled and fertilised.  It took 3 days – even harrowing after dark –  but we finished 2 hours before the rain came.

Brad cut firewood and filled the wood store, the guinea fowl were hunted by a variety of predators, we saw our first Whistling and Black Shouldered Kites and think we found our first edible mushroom
