    plenty if fodder saved which is always a bonus. Bar the week or two of real hot weather, there is a cold feeling around a lot of the year too.

    We seemed to move from the second half of summer to middle of Autumn in three days.

    twice this week we had rain sufficiently heavy to overflow the guttering on the house. We’re here twelve years and never saw that before. I went up ladder to check but gutters are clear.

    climate change was said to bring us more extremes, maybe we’re seeing the thin edge of this move in. Maybe it’s coincidence.

    plenty of fodder but there’s a bit of slurry to get out later this week hopefully

    Ya grass came in bursts. I have 50 more bakes than I planned. Grass continually got out of control which resulted in poor thrive and having to take out grazing areas which then caused grass to run out on grazing platform.

    It's all down to the more extreme meandering movements in the Jet Stream. For the heatwave, we were below the jet stream. Now we are back above it. It moved up and down some bit in the past, but now it seems to be very erratic. I have very little grass here.

    Lying awake for a few hours last night and eventually found myself on conspiracy stuff as sometimes happens.

    i hasn’t seen much about HAARP recently but apparently we’re on WW3 and the fires in Greece and Turkey are the results of the Americans attacking using their HAARP array. Oh, and a handy dual use apparently it’s a mind control device too. That’s seriously good engineering there to both control the weather and peoples minds.
