We spent almost all morning in the garden yesterday, weeding and gathering for our vegan feast. The young people were entranced by the Duke of Kupa, who spent a lot of time sashaying about looking gorgeous. His tail sways as he walks.
Showing off his feathers and his wives.
You have to wait outside. Stay with Hairy like a good cow. No, I am not laughing at you Queenie, I am laughing with you.
The honey is still the same light shade – the light in this shot just makes some of them look darker. So far we have harvested 14 pints ( about 8 litres) from that super and more coming. It is not very warm so it is dripping slowly. Oops I forgot the milk. Wait!
There, the Land of Milk and Honey.
Good morning. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. More gardening and hopefully fencing for us today. The weather is so cool that we are roaring through the outside work.
Well done on so many of you getting all the sheep’s names right. You didn’t know there was going to be a test did you!! For the record Minty is much smaller than Meadow. Hand raised lambs will never be as robust as lambs who are brought up on mother’s milk. She will catch up though. Look how big Mia is now.
As you know every morning after the milking, the feeding out and the cleaning up is done, I come back to the study for an hour cruising about looking to see what you are all up to. I place the new post on my Farmy FaceBook page. Share any images and posts from you guys that catch my eye. (I am working on doing more of that too. It is easy to share in these mediums.) Then I post my favourite shot from my own Post onto my pinterest Farmy board. Today I am going to have a hard time choosing a favourite. I might just wait and see what you have to say.
Have a lovely day.
Look what was happening on the farmy on this day a year ago. I had a very weak hive last year so I put two hives together. Combining two Bee Hives. This hive performed very well this summer. We just collected their honey yesterday. So this is a well timed retrospective. I really am enjoying reading these old posts.
