We have moved the piglets this week with Sandy, up to the woodland, as they were starting to wreck the field outside their nursery (we have been letting them out to feed so that Sandy didn't eat their as well!) They should be weaning next week, so then we will move Sandy back to her nursery for a rest

potatoes, and strawberries ready for picking. Next up will be the sweet corn, leeks, runners and french beans. The cabbage and cauliflower don't look quite so good, as some bug has got in with them...in the poly tunnel we have planted lots of tomatoes of different varieties in grow bags down the centre, and mixed salads round the edges in raised beds.
We are starting ours tall in the Friday market (formerly WI/Country Markets) behind Smiths again this week hopefully, so do call in and buy some produce. We are also selling sweet peas to Oops a Daisy the florist in Cricklade Street, Cirencester
We have lots of pork, bacon, sausages and gammon for sale this week too!
The tractor we purchased (a second hand Kubota) is still in the yard - with a few small problems, but hopefully by next week it will be sorted !
