Thumb twiddling on the fields

MoleGo Local Food is quiet.

Reading seed catalogues, ordering a few seeds, moving Chinese broccoli from the propagator shed to a cooler but still above freezing poly tunnel, sowing a few more pea shoots. Picking up membrane from the fields to store for future use, tidying up. Noting that it’s the cold side of cool even in the poly tunnels.

And being surprised that Mr Mole is already tunneling despite the cold soil. Maybe Mr Mole knows something we don’t. Or maybe he’s busy looking for food.

Ian our grower is expecting to take “holiday” time out to be a shepherd as he does each year soon. February 19th he says but thinks that the sheep may not have read this date and some lambs may arrive a few days earlier.
