It's been mixed weather on our smallholding here in West Cork. The last weeks been like an Indian summer. I mowed the lawns, dug over some of the potato plot and spread half of the compost heap on top of the soil, strimmed, lots of weeding and trimmed the hedges for the fifth time this year.
The calves have been grazing in the field and we have even started renovating one of the tractors. The weather makes such a difference when it's nice.
|Yesteday (Friday) was quite a contrast. We had a biblical like deluge. Puddles became lakes and streams became rivers. Tarmac floated down the roads and if it wasn't for living in between two bays (Bantry and Dunmanus) we would have been flooded out.|
