Synopsis:

October 2010

Daisy the shepherd

 


As the evenings and mornings draw in, we've been busy as usual. Busier it seems, as shorter days always mean packing everything into a shorter time.

Our main event was harvesting the grapes from the polytunnel. We had hoped to do this sooner, but as usual there are other distractions. Still, eventually we managed to sort out 8 demijohns of wine - 7 red, and 1 white.

We would have had several more if we'd used a different recipe, but we do prefer the rich flavour that we get with this method. There's no added water, juice only. Can't wait to bottle it in the spring!

In the meantime, Daisy has become a good labour saving device in a slightly different 'field'. As our nominated sheep dog, she helps us to move the sheep around more efficiently. She weaves around behind them according to our hand signals (not traditional, we realise), and they disappear back into their paddock without too much resistance.

It certainly saves a good deal of running and shouting on our part! Well done Daisy!
