The Spring weather has been unsettled the last few days, on Monday night there was a hail storm and we had a power cut for most of the night.
Sadly for a lot of apple growers the damage was more then just a power cut and hail on the decking,some growers lost their apple crops and when the grower is not insured there won't be any income for the year.
The following day I heard the hail canons blasting away, this device sends shock waves into the atmosphere to disrupt the formation of hail stones.

I leave the sheep mostly for about ten minutes, but when they start nibbling on the blueberry scrubs I escort them arm waving back behind the gate.

|Also the lawn tastes nice!|
The pond was not a pond, just an area filled with mud and weeds to the top, I think the pond had not been cleaned for ten years or so.
It took Shiloh and me two hours to empty the pond with buckets and the mud is spread over the garden were it can dry up in the sun.
Now the pond is ready for clean water, waterlilies and gold fish!
