A Lorry Load Of Goodies .......
Martin arrived hoe this morning with the lorry piled high with lots of goodies.
First off Sol got his pressie from Martin
One very happy dog with his Jurassic bone
Next was my turn, wooden pallet collars, the one on the right shows how they come they are hinged so within seconds one raised bed
They stack on top of each other and have clips to hold them together, I got eight in total in exchange for a dozen eggs, good swap I think, I plan to use them 2 deep for carrots and parsnips as our soil is too rocky for them to get any depth. :-)
Next was Hera's Panels these came from our yard and are being used to make a new Turkey run :-)
Martin also bought me a new poo picker now we can poo pick together and get the job done quicker, the couple who poo pick together stay together :-)
Then it was these racks, I had them for the shop and they have been in storage at the yard since, I thought they would be ideal for storing the onions garlic and shallots and squash in.
The rest of the lorry was taken up with wood for the wood store, all exciting stuff, other wives get flowers and chocolate bought for them I get a poo picker and lots of useful goodies.
Other news tomorrow I am picking up 6 POL chickens we cant keep up with the orders from ours and I have just arranged to go and see a man about some goats on Monday, we have put up some of the new Turkey run we will extend it at a later date and clipped there wings even though the panels are 6ft tall they can still fly over them so I hope wing clipping will put a stop to that.
Runner beans are now coming thick and fast, I harvested another basket of peas today and the french beans that are now slowing down, 7 cucumbers and a couple of dozen tomatoes and the first of the crook neck squash, still feeling a bit rough but getting better, we are having dinner when Martin gets back from walking Sol and then we are having a relaxing evening together :-)
