November Sunset Collection

Just very occasionally you get one of those very special sunsets as a crisp frosty night starts to take hold.  Tonight was one of those nights on the farm, burning orange skyline fading through to dark indigo. It’s going to be a cold one tonight.

Wind Then Frost; it’s really winter now.

Stormy conditions of the last few days have blown our tarps around quite a lot. So, putting them all back is this mornings first job. Also, its good to see some frost on the ground, it brings many benefits.

Many thanks to all those who organised and took part in our Samhain celebration last night. Best of all, it was great fun with really lovely people. Here are just a few pictures with more to follow.

Putting New Life Into Old Tools

I have just ‘refurbished’ my Dad’s old Stanley carpenters axe after it had a tussle with a nail, one of the perils of using recycled timber. I shortened the shaft on this axe a few years ago to make a handy pocket sized axe for carving with. I honed the blade on my old leather bass strap which has just the right texture to make a brilliant strop. When it’s sharp enough to shave with it’s sharp enough to cut wood.

Willow

Our willow is now started to die away and join in with the other trees on site to make amazing displays of colour.

A Winter Basket

We have some classy customers and one brought along her basket to put our veg in. A perfect match lit by the light from the barn’s north window. Maybe we should start making baskets for our customers, what do you think?
