FARMING IN THE SNOW.

Please spare a thought for the farmers in the snow. Some of the cauliflower and broccoli crops have failed. Harvesting machines don't work in hard ground, so they are having to harvest by hand to stop the cauliflowers turning to mush.
Sheep can survive in temperatures as low as -20, but early lambs need fodder, and water. Pipes are frozen and quad bikes and dogs won't go in a foot of snow, so the farmer has to do all the work on foot.
Rosemary knitted this cauliflower in carpet yarn, in short rows on the knitting machine. We've had it for months.
