Life lately has just been a constant succession of lambing beats and shifting breaks on crops for the cattle. But that is what plenty of us do at this time of the year. However my head has finally resurfaced and I’ve survived another lambing but it gets tougher as the body ages.
I pretty well keep the diary as empty as possible during August and just concentrate on farming.
I’ve been chivvied about doing lambing beats by those who reckon they go skiing instead but this is my harvest and it would be like an apple grower taking their break during picking.
