That's 2 photographs of a new shelter we built this weekend to keep the Silage dry and the cattle quite like sticking their heads through the head-feeder and are quite oblivious to any incumbent weather. The silage shelter is made from 2 metal gates, some box iron and a few corrugated iron sheets. It cost me eighty Euros to make the shelter in total. Since this picture was taken the top part above the head feeder is also closed in to stop the silage getting ruined. We still lose some of it though, with the cattle pulling it and lying on it and once it gets oxygen, the silage seems to decompose very rapidly. You just can't win can you?
There is still no chance of getting on the vegetable plot so things look very untidy at the moment and wweds are having a field day. We are still managing to harvest some crops though and if the weather ever books up I will attack the plot with my trusty Azada.
Talking of the weather or rather a song about it. I thought I would mention one of my favourite rock bands of the 1980's: All About Eve. Think I saw them twice? Once at Manchester Apollo and once at Glastonbury Festival in 1989. Julianne Regan is one gorgeous lady. If you think Florence and the Machine is good, check out this lady. Talk about gypsy Goth. Here's a video of Julianne and the band in action at the said Glastonbury Festival in 1989. Oh yeah, the song is: In The Clouds. I knew there was a link somewhere to the weather.
