Yesterday I went back through some of our old shots so that I could compile an extra page that new people can refer to if they need to identify one of the animals or birds. It sits up there, (look up) right next to About.
It is The Cast of Characters Page. Do you see it up there under Kupa? Pop over if you want to see the whole page. It will give you an overview of the Lead characters in our little farmy Play. It is not quite finished – however I have a feeling it never will be. Life is like that. Fluid. Like old glass. Things change you know!
I was uplifted by the colour that I found in our previous pages. ( As The Farmy dives back into yet another Bloody ‘Cold Snap!’. I’ll give you Cold Bloody Snap!) So, it was a relief to look back and KNOW that things will change soon . Here are a few of the shots I came across.
You will remember some of these old shots~!
In fact some of these are not even from this year!! I have gone straight to summer so we can feel the warmth! Remember that the bees come on April 13th! I hope it is warmer by then. This cold cannot hold on too much longer surely.
Soon it will be THIS hot!
There isn’t that better? Keep the spring faith.
Good morning. Yesterday and the day before the ground thawed just enough for us to get some heavy work done. We worked hard and fast. The old summer pigsty was removed and that little field (the salad bar field) was covered in compost for the chickens to spread around. This will be lightly tilled and sown in a mixture of red clover, white clover, summer rye and a fescue I have not grown before. It is a difficult field because of all the gravel below the thin layer of soil, so this is a hardy fast growing recovery mix. I will also add chicory.
Yesterday was funny. Was there a change in gravity? Everything I lifted seemed so much heavier than usual. I am used to time doing strange things but when gravity waxes and wanes it is a weird sensation.
After this next cold spell, and once the ground has dried enough to work, we will be ready to sow the seeds. We are re-sowing four small fields this year so we have our work cut out for us.
I hope you all have a lovely day. I really do. I have just realised that I have not added myself to The Cast page. Later I will go back and see if there is a shot of me we can use. I am always on the working side of the camera so images of miss c are as rare as hens teeth!
