It is very wet. It has been very wet for a few days now. This is not a complaint.....more, an observation. In our area there was 80mm after the big rain last weekend. And that was not a lot. One of my market trading colleagues lost the roof from his tunnel last weekend. He had just replaced it, and now will have to do it again. Not part of his winter plan of action.
There is an interesting climate in the Dordogne where in the space of a few days you can go from a balmy 24 degrees to having ice on the windscreen and lighting both fires in the house. I admit that I was not quite prepared for that when we moved here 15 years ago, however one does become used to it.
The grass is growing, or at least it was until this morning, and other than moving all the young stock into the fields with a choice of warm and dry barn, or some brisk fresh air in the field, things continue as normal. The rams are in with the old girls and appear to be doing what it is they do at this time of year to provide us with next years harvest.
It was such a good day I am toying with the idea of returning to complete my list of things to get.
See you all very soon
