Spring is finally in the air as our geese started laying on New Years Day – traditionally they start laying around Shrove Tuesday but possibly due to the warm winter this year the girls are a bit out of sync! we took the opportunity to pop some eggs in the incubator and our first gosling hatched on the 5th February. We are now just keeping our fingers crossed that there will be some brothers and sisters for this little lonely baby soon. Did you know that a goose egg takes from 31 to 35 days to hatch? A baby goose is a gosling, dad is a Gander and mum is a Goose. Our three adults are called Eric Ebden and the Gerties.
The short hours may be limiting what we can do to prepare for the 2020 season however we’ve not been idle! So far this month we’ve planted lots of willow, alder and rowan trees to create natural boundaries between the pitches on the hay field – these trees wil also act as windbreaks and privacy screens for our customers. In the evenings we’ve been making signs for the site using offcuts of timber and a router – this has been a learning curve for both of us but we are pretty chuffed with the results so far! Rob has also made a prototype dining shelter – once he’s happy with design each pitch will have a covered area for both shade from the sun and shelter from any Welsh rain. The shelters can be packed down for storage at the end of the season.
