Pania and Tui.
Posing for the paparrazi. Signatures later! Maybe.
Lots of flat-out farm work again yesterday. Working on the little hoop house, and bringing in as much produce as is left in the gardens, tonight it is meant to freeze down to 35F (1.6C) so it a race against time. Who knows if the tomatoes will survive that anyway. But I will put the tarp back on as well for an extra layer of insulation.
We had a proper vets appointment yesterday. Marmalade Cat weighs just under 9 oz, his heart is good, he is well hydrated and tried to eat the vets thumb right off when the man offered him a meaty treat, he is on antibiotics for a bowel infection. The noisy fella is looking good. The vet (who is not my lady vet -the Lady Vet handles the Big animals) said he looks between two and three weeks old. Even younger than we thought.
And doing exceptionally well for his age. He loves to be outside.
Which is good, because so do we.
Good morning. Already by this morning the Little Marmalade Cat’s medicine seems to be taking effect and he is not crying as much and doing better physically. He chuffs around the floor without stopping, only really happy when he can see Boo. As I write he is climbing up onto Boo’s head.
Today will be more cleaning of the barn, and when my next sheet of plastic comes I will finish the greenhouse, though it is raining outside this morning so that will be a damp task. And I do have to move the pigs electric fence, and shift Daisy and Queenie into Pats Paddock. Which means I need to move the sheep that are already in there. Thank goodness for my big Wet and Dry coat.
I hope you have a lovely day.
your friend, celi
