This year along with our usual plantings I decided to try a no dig patch - I found the concept super interesting and really enjoyed the process, and here we are!!

We planted a few veggies and salads but I've become just a little obsessed with the cabbages!! I'm amazed they have survived the caterpillar and hen invasion earlier in July, but they are looking good and feeling quite pleased with myself and definitely flavour of the month - lucky Jimmy!!

As with all new trials it's been a learning process and lots to take on board and improve for next year, but just loving the results so far 🥬🥬

We're glad to finally have the sheep sheared lastnight...and so are the sheep!You can see the lift from the wool that they were ready. As we don't have a shed large enough to put them to keep dry we are very much reliant on the rain staying away! So 3rd time lucky and lastnight was the night!

One of the perks to Soays is they generally self shear so we did a bit of rooing to tidy a couple of them up a little - a successful evening!!

We will keep our wool again as sadly it's value is so low, so again this year we will make plenty use of it around the croft on some wee projects and plantings

A lovely start to the morning... The cheviots have officially starting lambing!!

This ewe is always such a good mummy and I think she is looking very happy and proud of her new arrival 🐑🤗 we will keep them in for a day or two depending on the weather and then they can go back outside and join the others

What a beautiful day!! ☀️

We took in the Soays and cross gimmers to the fank and gave them a boluse (slow release of essential minerals) and moved them to a new field. Tomorrow we will take the ewes and tups in.
Amy recorded some videos for a wonderful early years music organisation @artsplayhighland - featuring Winny the horse and some puddles!!
Finally a bonfire after tidying around the site, and a couple of drams to enjoy by the fire

Suspicious Soays!

Some of the ewes came to see if I had any treats while walking through the field today, and I was lucky to be able to get some close up snaps! No treats so they didn't stay long...

As much as the Soays can be tricky to round up and never go in the direction you'd like... There's something very special about this native breed and wouldn't be without them

And it's back across the road we go!! As usual the Soays zoomed off ahead before I was ready with my camera...
We will be sorting through the ladies and deciding which ones we will be selling at the Mart over the next week. Roo as ever was super keen and enjoying his job

Our ladies are enjoying munching some apples from our apple tree this morning 🍎

They must have worked up an appetite after rooting up their paddock and making lots of mud and mess after the rain yesterday.. They're favourite thing to do of course!! I'm not sure what our chief inspector Roo thinks of it all 👀 time to prep their next spot on the croft!

The last few years we have enjoyed planting a variety of tatties on the croft, in particular heritage/older tatties. They have such wonderful colours and tastes, and it's been really interesting to learn how they all cook slightly differently...!!

Here's just some of the many varieties planted this year...can you guess what they are?

After this year's shearing, we had some bags of off cuts and daggings (the not so clean parts that don't get sold with the wool)

We decided we would put them to good use and put them around our young trees and shrubs, and the small amount left went on the compost heap. This will suppress weeds and will slowly break down over time acting as a natural fertilizer 🐑🐑🌳

We had a new and exciting experience on the croft at the weekend.... One of our pigs had her first litter of piglets!

We had a wee family game of ' guess how many piglets??' delighted i won with 9. Sadly one didn't make it, however the rest of the piglets and mum are doing great and we're getting lots of enjoyment from them

    I'm so delighted to find this page, as my great-grandfather John McLean was born in Culburnie in 1824...looking at your posts allows me to imagine (to a degree) what his surroundings were like before he left for Canada/Buffalo NY.
    Great name! Have you thought of starting a record label? Oh wait ...
