May 2015


What a week. What was expected to be political chaos, turned out to be a ride in the park. The two Ed’s lost their day jobs, sorry boys. Nigel doesn’t know if he is coming or going, Nick will find history judges him more kindly. As for the lovely Nicola, all those lovely little pink and red suites, helicopters, stardom. Obviously got her eye on the top job, but she will need to get some Corgis and a hat first.

So now we have the election out of the way we can get down to some serious business. To the right, runner beans just been planted and look fantastic, but as I write being attacked by pheasants and deer. There are about 4 acres here, but just a few deer can do a huge amount of damage in a very short space of time.

On the cheese front we are still desperately tight on Old Winchester. We are not in a position to take on new customers for about another 12 months. The new cheese vat is working well and we are running it flat out. For the surplus milk we sold, not made into cheese, we were paid 19.15 pence/lt.
