It’s all go here at colouritgreen towers, chickens and ducks are laying eggs a plenty, we have chicks and more eggs in the incubator, the veg patches are being planted up, the greenhouse is filling, the new greenhouse is on order, we’ve sold some birds at the poultry auction, kitchen renovations are still underway and I am trying to keep the shop side of things – online and gift shops, full of stock. On top of all that, we are having a new roof and the hung slates on the wall replaced, so major works. So of course we did the obvious thing and got some pigs – little spotty ones.
F this year – Feziwig and Finnbar. They are Oxford Sandy and Blacks cross with Gloucester Old Spot – so a change for us as we have had Berkshires in previous years, and this time we have boys rather than gilts (last two of the litter) ,; it will be interesting to see if we feel there is a difference. They are still settling in and have had a good rummage in the mud.
