The Shush Sisters have been working hard at spreading the new soil around their front yard. What I do is – each day I sprinkle some corn about the earth and then they push the soil around as they hoover. After that they lie on the hills, which looks amusing but impossible to get a shot of as they are actually laying in wait for me.
Later in the autumn I will get the tractor and level it out properly but in the mean time they are having heaps of fun doing the dirty work. During the autumn I will add everything I pull out of the barn, the pigs will mix it up, adding manure of their own and then this little field will be tilled in the early spring and resown. Each spring I will resow a field, so the pigs will actually move to a new field each year as part of this process.
Though really they are just biding their time until the big fenced vegetable garden is finished then the real fun will begin.
Son of Neanderthol Man, who has been busy inspecting all the mulch we were given by the tree men down the road, says good morning too.
Good morning from me and the purse camera.
It rained in the night, only a little but it was nice and the rain has brought some cooler air with it. I hope that is not the end of our summer weather. I am not ready for autumn yet.
This is a short post so that you still have time to see what the bees were doing a year ago. If you have not seen Sugar Water for Bees do pop over. Because this is what I will be doing again today.
Have a lovely day.
