Duck Weed

Desperatly in need of Duck weed, ever since the ducks got out (or rather were let out) last week, and the raided the store pool we have been short of duck weed.

Really annoys me is hearing people complain about it, when I actually want it.

The Pond is Clean Again

Drained the pond and cleaned it again last night.

Refilled it so now the water butt is empty.

Runner Ducks

Can't seem to find any young runner ducks locally, looks like we may have to rethink this one.

More Sausages

Made some more sausages, much better than last time.

Sykehouse Show Pictures (hopefully)

Andy has now agreed that we can have some more ducks after watchinng the sheepdog display, great display, one man 4 sheepdogs and 12 runner ducks. So the hunt is on now to find some runner ducks.

Sykehouse show

We set off for our first trip to the Sykehouse Show on Sunday, we have driven through Sykehouse many times, but have never attended the show before.

Great little show, disappointed that there were no pigs, goats or poultry, But everything else was great. Loved the children's mini garden section.

Have fallen head over heels in love with Dexter cows, they are lovely, so small and perfect especially the calves.


Had to take the garden cart back and change it as the first one was faulty. Got that changed Saturday, and so spent Saturday evening making that up, great I now have wheels.

Saturday, had a drive out looking at property, didn't find much in our price range.

Sunday we went to Sykehouse show, more on this with Photos later.

Garden Cart

Went to B&Q last night and purchased a Garden Cart or Tipper trailer. Similier to the one in the picture, so todays job, making it up. Should be fun.

But it will be a lot better than a wheel barrow for transporting stuff to the allotment etc.

Rain, Rain and a bit More Rain, oh and some wind

Wow what has happened to the weather, okay I know I complained about the heat, but I'm now in fleece lined trousers and fleecy top, as well as wellies, just to go and feed the ducks, and I'm still cold.

Okay its has stopped raining now, but the wind is still blowing, and hard.

The greenhouse went for a tumble yesterday, so got to go and sort that out in a minute.

It's raining, its pouring

At last the heat is gone, and the garden has had a good water.

Sausage pictures

Well here they are the first finished batch of sausages, I think I may have got the wrong size skins, or possibly the mixture is to dry. We'll see when they are cooked.


Well my sausage casings came today, so guess what we have for tea.

After a little research on the internet, found a nice recipe.


Just finished making them, pictures to follow.
