A Great Year For Silage, Spuds And Onions. ("All good gifts around us..")
And yay the rain gods did send deluges and the grass decideth it was time to grow and grow and grow. Even the sun did shineth and 2012 had a bountiful harvest.
The the silage lads did phone and tell me they were on the way. The silage contractors came to harvest my fields of very long grass. It's only a couple of months ago the cattle were grazing it. Yesterday they did harvest 72 (SEVENTY TWO) bales of silage for ye bovine creatures to eat during the Winter. That's absolutely incredible, to say not one bit of fertiliser ("the bag manure")was spread. Only thing is I only need about thirty. So I am going to have to sell forty of them? God is in his heaven and the moo cows have got food and we may even make some money from the smallholding for a change.
