It’s the Grand Slam decider weekend, here, on the 16th of March and we are ecstatic that Wales has won a 3rd Grand Slam in 11 years after beating Ireland to grab the Six Nations title. We are so proud at Gower Fresh Christmas Trees with our National Team. Wales were spectacular in attack but also their defence was incredible under such pressure leaving Ireland almost 25:0 up to the last minute.
Well done to Warren Gatland, this was his 50th and final Six Nations match in charge. He is now officially the first coach in Five or Six Nations history to win three Slams, his team’s record-breaking winning run now stretching to 14 games.
The weather has been rough to say the least, storm Gareth has been ferocious blowing everyone in its way. However, it looks like next week there’s going to be a break in the weather on Gower leaving the sodden fields dry out. That will allow us to get the planting machinery out and start work. It will be a relief to get them all in as spring is almost here. Speaking to many other Christmas tree growers around the uk and the world, their trees and wildlife is dormant, where us on the Gower we are weeks ahead due to the coastal and peninsula climate which warms earlier than the rest of UK. That’s is great but hurries us up to get pruning done in time before trees flush (burst buds and grow), so everything needs to be done then, gets interesting when you have 450,000 trees to nurture.
The Reindeer are loosing the last of their antlers , sadly don’t look impressive when their antlers fall, but already some have started to grow knew ones The baby reindeer growing inside should be getting bigger and we should see them moving soon. I feel like being an expectant father all over again, perm anxiety, lol.
