September 2011


Early morning, approaching the brow of Short Hill Nomansland, just caught the sun coming through the trees, with just a bit of early morning mist. Veg nearly all done and finished, just the pumpkin left to clean and harvest along with the squash. Not been an easy year for either. We were worried that we were not going to get a number of the Halloween pumpkin to colour up orange but the fantastic weather we have had along with no frost made all the difference.

. British Cheese awards in Cardiff again this year, Gold for the Lyburn Gold and Silver for Stoney Cross will do nicely, but the stars of the Show yet again, Sandy and Andy Rose of Two Hoots with their Barkham Blue, runs off with the best British Blue prize again.
