On our way back from delivering eggs on Saturday we spotted several small flocks of geese all enjoying life around Lake Gara, not near any farms or houses we wonder if they are wild geese or escapes, we were unable to identify the breed, so maybe someone is missing a gaggle of geese, in all, there were over twenty over a distance of a mile or so, lovely to see and they would be safe from foxes with such a large lake to escape in.
Tomorrow the early potatoes have to be planted, St Patricks day is the traditional day to do this, the main crop will follow in a couple of weeks at Easter. With all these potatoes being planted we will have to get pigs to eat them all, Simon has given up eating potatoes due to gout, in the two weeks since he has given them up the condition has improved, now he has to come to terms with eating no sweet peppers or tomatoes and that will be hard for him.
