Meanwhile, I managed to get a whole load of lovely local Bramleys and pears all peeled and chopped and into my slow cookers today with a little sugar and some cinnamon sticks. Tomorrow I will separate it all into containers for freezing so that I have lots of lovely fresh stewed fruit for the winter. Yum! Might well use some for apple crumble for lunch with Julie tomorrow just to get the ball rolling!
Here at Ellie's Dairy we will be hearing the patter of tiny feet again soon. Not the goats just yet, but the Gracie Moos. David had told me that he was expecting calves sometime in December. But, I got to thinking about it all yesterday and checked the dates that Benji the Bull had gone in with the ladies and .... it was 9 months ago today! So, they could be due any time. It has to be said that they are rather large at the moment.
