Were waiting for the sun here, it`s coming the weather chart on my samsung says so.

Our first summer guests arrived today for a weeks stay. They live in California, there waiting for the sun too. 

Farmer J`s waiting to cut the many hectares waiting to be turned into hay. Cuttings a lot later this year due to the weather as you need a few days to cut, turn, re turn, line up and bail. Tomorrow he will start again with his farmer friend down the road. The following week will be dry, the weather chart says so.

The veggie patch is waiting for veggies to grow and weeds to disappear.  I will get weeding this week it's going to be good weeding weather, the weather chart says so.

The sheep have been waiting to be sheared . There fleece has been to wet to cut, not that they have noticed as they may of had to get the knitting needles out to knit a jumper as it's been a bit chilly here (for June). This week their hoping to show off their bodies once the clippers come out.

Our mallards been waiting, his a bit lost without his mate who has hurt his leg and is resting in the barn.  

My sewing machines been waiting to be used, it's placed in it's new home and raring to go. As it was Sunday I plugged it in and started on making a skirt, it's a summer skirt, for the summer were waiting for, it's coming the little man in my samsung has filled in the weather chart for sun, sun, sun.(with the possibility of a few showers)

Demounting a hanger

Farmer J has brought a second hand hanger. It's an extension to be added on to the farms hanger which  up to last year housed the cows in 2/3rds and hay in the other 1/3. As we now have more cattle and calves the hay space is being converted to house the cattle giving them full access to it.
Only thing is the extension has to be dismantled (and erected when planning permission is granted).

He managed to take down the road crash barriers on the side of it but need my gophering skills today to start taking off the roof. Cold, foggy and damp it was a bit chilly standing around however we did have a visitor, a old lady hunt dog. Once fed and watered (doesn't everyone carry dog food in their car or is it just me?) she found a draught free spot between the hay bales to have a sleep before being called back to her hunter once hunting had finished.

So a 1/3 of the roof is down with the rest to be completed on Monday ready for the metal structure to follow.

Laguepie chestnut fair

Yesturday was he annual chestnut fair at Laguepie, a small village in the Tarn et Garonne. The sun shone which made for an enjoyable time amberling round the market stalls, drinking coffee and eating hot chestnuts. Traditional dances and muscicians put on a display. In previous years there has been a mushroom display showing edible, toxic and fatal fungi in appropriate coloured boxes of green , red and black (leathel ones). I imagine no mushrooms could be found as it has been dry here for a while.

The many varieties of apples grown locally along with walnuts and chestnuts were laid out on tressel tables, so many different types of apples were displayed. As well as chestnuts for sale there was apple juice being made, which at this time of year many villages and organisations invite you to take your non treated apples along to have them pressed into juice for a small fee. We didn't stay for the set menu lunch, each course is chestnut based so you really have to love your chestnuts.
