We have been lucky enough to have two fantastic weekends of weather since we got back from holiday. It is early June and the day looks set to be perfect. It makes its so much easier to keep on top of things when the weather plays ball according to the seasons. There is no doubt that small holding in the winter is hard work, and a labour of love; we need the summer to be resonable or it can seem like an endurance test. Yesterday the day was beautiful and hot, and today looks set to be even better. Becs is having to mow the grass each weekend, but from memory that slows down by mid June.
