Back From Holiday

We've just come back form a lovely week away in New Quay in Wales. 
I'd left our little farm in the capably hands of our neighbours so it was really nice to just switch off and relax. 
We had an amazing week, to start with the whole of my side of the family met up and stayed for a night, we ate well, had family with us to share with looking after the kids and even managed a trip to the pub!
The kids loved it as well and loved all the attention that was lavished on them! 

Big Sunday roast

My middle one taking full advantage and being carried back to the cottage! 

Brother and sister-in-law helping with the boy! 
The weather wasn't great the whole week, but that didn't dampen our spirits... 

...or not for long at least! 
The rest of the week was amazing as well, lots of time spent as a family and I've even managed to visit a few places that were really interesting and I learnt loads from. 
I'll be doing a few posts during the week on visiting Dawn from Being Self Sufficient In Wales, National Trust Property Llanerchaeron and a visit to Lammas Eco Village.

Truth About Sheep

 I read this the other day in an old smallholding book and I thought it summed up keeping sheep perfectly.

No Space Is No Excuse!

I saw this the other day driving around and had to share it.
The guy loves his potatoes but has no garden to grow them in so each year has these tubs up on his roof and waters them with a hose, He has to climb out of his window to do it!

What lenghts would you go to have some fresh produce?

Future Farmer

Found the boy sat on the stairs reading an old childhood book "the farmer" he was so excited to show me the sheep!

Can't imagine where he picked up the habbit of reading about farming all the time...

The Garden from the air!

Looks almost organised...
My second garden was too low in resolution from the drone picture.
