Monday 29th April

Cool and grey in the morning but getting sunny and warm. It was Bryn’s 4th birthday today – where does the time go?  He had tuna for dinner as a treat.

Vet came out to give Leo his second tetanus, so that’s him up to date and he doesn’t need another one for 13 months.

Tuesday 30th April

Delivered a talk at a local primary school on farming. One cheeky wee B, but he wasn’t for long.  Caught up with some paperwork. Wrote a shopping list, which lead into a good tidy up of the pantry and a defrost of the kitchen freezer.

Lovely warm, sunny day. Dan got into the bees – all hives have queen cells, so he’ll have to take anti-swarming action this week. He also did some weeding in the apiary – loads of thistles – and started to harrow Laing’s Field.
