Sweet peas, sheep and Pay-it-forward winners
It's the middle of October and I've picked my first bunch of Sweet Peas from the garden! They were a bit slow getting going; I wonder if I'll get any more before the frosts come?
The visiting sheep we've got have eaten all the grass down in one field so needed moving to the other one. Other years when we tried to do this it's been a right palaver trying to round them up. We'd nicely get them together and going towards the gate, when one would decide to break free and they'd all follow and split up and we'd be running about after them like idiots!
This year I saw the light!
I was walking back from the local shop one day through the field, and they all followed me. They must have thought I'd got something for them to eat in the bag. With this in mind we put some apples it a couple of buckets and rattled them and 'Hey presto!' they came running. Easy peasy
and the three the Pay-it-forward gift winners are.................
