I looked for loveliness yesterday and found it everywhere.
BooBoo doing his best to be lovely!
Big Dog is always lovely.
I find peacock feathers in the strangest places. Only the short ones now, all Kupa’s long feathers are in a vase catching the morning sun through the windows.
Charlotte is trying her best to be lovely. And doing very well in her solitary pen down the back. She just needed some recovery time. I think she is on the right track now. Putting on weight and doing lots of sleeping. Soon I will let Sheila into the field next to her and we will see if they can play nice.
Beautiful apples. All the little apple trees in the new orchard were allowed to keep a few apples each this year and they look too beautiful to eat.
God morning. I collected my thousand pounds of feed yesterday in The Matriarch’s big Jeep without any problems and unloaded it into the garage. My shoulders felt the weight of moving half a ton of feed but it was good work. It is fat free feed so it should store well for a few weeks as they go through it. (Here they add pig fat to the feed as a protein. But I am not comfortable with feeding pigs to pigs so we will be relying on 18 eggs a day and alfalfa and wheatgerm for protein.) They will grow a little slower which is fine. Usually I will breed the pigs to match Daisy’s milking. Daisy is out of sinc with us this year. We are still waiting on the blood tests to see if she and Queenie are pregnant. Fingers still crossed.
Thank you for all your comments yesterday. It was a wake up call losing Number Seven, I shall be even more vigilant now. We have a big cast of characters to care for and summer is in high gear with many balls in the air.
I am well on my way towards my objective of getting enough food stored to feed us for the winter. Though we will not be over-eating! In the next few weeks I will start the maintenance on the barn and building the recycled glasshouse. What I would do for a retired grand-dad close by who visited with his bag of tools once a week.
Ok. Hi Ho, Hi Ho!
Love your friend, celi
