Have you ever looked up and realised your day is almost gone and you have not even Thought about dinner. Well Dinner was not my main concern yesterday there was too much to do, but this ability of time to speed up and slow down is definitely most unsettling.
And you are left thinking .. what just happened.
They eat all the greens, root out all the old vegetables and chomp on those, eat any bugs hanging about in the soil, dig into the dirt and generally get everything ready for next year. Sheila tends to pick up stalky debris and carry them away which is useful.
They have a toilet in the adjacent field so they also leave the garden clean and sweet smelling. I will leave the gate open for a few days. They say it will be warm until Friday. Pigs are very useful little workers on the sustainable farm. They have also been hard at work turning over the turf in the rat house paddock, in the spring John will finish the job with the tiller and we will sow a good mix of grasses and legumes. As you know each field is re-sown every six years so this work is ongoing for the Shush Sisters.
Good morning. I had better quickly post as we are in the midst of a lightening storm with heavy rain and thunder and the electricity is going on and off. Yikes!
I will pop in again later.
Love, love celi
