The rain came in August, although not enough to fill our springs, the moisture made a big difference to grass growth. The fields are now a healthy green and the turnips have shot up. On top of a water shortage the dry spell brought an infestation of black caterpillars which were munching their way through what little turnip leaves we had. Some plants were reduced to skeletons we had to spray the field with pesticide before we lost the whole crop. When the rain came slugs were a worry and we had to spread slug pellets as well as spraying for mildew. Fortunately our livestock have fared better than our crops, the lambs have grown well and are showing little sign of fly strike. Worms and other parasites have also been kept at bay. We are still supplementing their grazing by feeding silage and we are hoping to keep them outdoors as long as possible this winter – we have no choice really as the shed roof needs repairing before any livestock can be brought in, that’s September’s project!
