I could see that some thing was eating my new plants in the border but never expected quite so many snails in one night after putting down some environmentally friendly bait. Nearly 100 shells. I think they must have been wintering in the stone wall.
We would love to have just 2 lambs per ewe, as sheep only have 2 udders and lambs like to have one each. This ewe has had 4 lambs! So I will have to hand rear with a bottle 2 of them, which is a lot of work and often the lambs do not do as well as if they are reared by their mothers. At the moment we have 9 lambs that are on the bottle, fed 4 times a day.
I took some of my many grandchildren to Chester’s Roman Fort on Hadrians Wall over half term to see if I could enlist them as new recruits! We had a very good time and spent about 2 hours at the site even though it was bitterly cold. It is one of the English Heritage sites along the wall and now I have bought a year’s membership,which also allows me to take up to six children at a time,[I think that would be rather an undertaking] so excellent value as there are quite a few English Heritage sites locally.
