Dan and Mark, and Ben, who's 15, were at Dalmore today helping John get the furniture out of storage. They fancy themselves as "workies" in the white van but they're more Crane brothers than Mitchell brothers. When they should have been eating rolls on square sausage, Mark was sharing some dried prunes. With a little fork. So Niles!

They did get loads done though. The workshop is now empty, cleaned and secure, so all the furniture is in there. John and Linda have cleaned out the greenhouse and started digging the walled garden, which will be our temporary vegetable garden. John says it's a pleasure to weed - the soil is very light, so I suspect a good dose of organic matter will be required in the autumn. He's got the maincrop potatoes in already.

Dan brought the van down here, and he, Mark and Ben have loaded up the hen house - which has been pressure washed and sprayed with Poutry Shield - and a pile of other stuff out of the garage. Heavens knows what time they'll get finished unloading.

Just as well they've got the prunes to keep them going. So to speak.
