In a spin.

No doubt about this being a tasty bit of grass!
On tuesday, I attended a Defra-funded 'Camelids and TB bio-security' workshop, with three speakers, who specialise in different aspects of the subject - it's vital to take note of the available knowledge and advice on a subject such as this, in order to minimise the risks to ones herd. It took place at a farm just past 'the middle of no-where', almost at 'the back of beyond'.
With the increasing herd comes the increasing poo hoovering, and that means the original manure heap fills quite quickly, so I built another today, located at the top of the veg patch so that it's easier for emptying the hoover. Talking of the 'poover', I know there are many people who are interested in how I'm getting on with it (no, really!), and it certainly has its quirks, can sometimes be cantankerous, and I'm sure deserves a blog dedicated to it one rainy weekend when there's nothing else to write about - "like now", I hear you say. I'll spare you that for now.

Mrs. Smallholder has been working on her web-site with her designer, and is spinning like mad to meet the demand for her products - more news on that soon.


  1. We are looking forward to hearing more Mrs S! x

  2. I know just how Mrs S feels, there just aren't enough hours in the day,

  3. We know how much poo is produced by our 8 boys, so we know the problem. Can't imagine how much is produced by the bigger herds! It's a cottage industry all on it's own! Shirley & Robbie

  4. But dont we and our friends just grow the best veg ever?!
