A month in Pictures
Nanette (my memory) made sure that I made our month in pictures for July. So here are my highlights and lowlights. I can’t believe how much we got through last month.
These cute little chicks
turned into theseand they have two more weeks to go.. yikes
Poppy and her Aunty Sheila just laid about enjoying this wonderful cool July.
The rake broke (and was fixed again) and we still got the hay in.
And it was cut again yesterday. The calves continued to grow. I was told yesterday that this little guy is worth 2.30 a pound. Almost a thousand dollars offered for him. Naturally I said no.
Our Mama died surrounded by her girls. I miss Mama. But it was her time.
Marmalade got naughtier.
The Plonkers went to the abbatoir. Tima and Boo slept some more. Yesterday a man came to see Tima and after a search we found her with her head in a bag of chook food so once again she is on the diet chain and I have to talk to my people about returning the bags to the locked up feed area. That pig is Such a PIG!
The red rangers went to the freezers. Though they were a little small. Next year I will grow them for longer. We began to make the essential oils for the soap making.
Daisy had her unfortunate accident. Standing on her teat. Nasty. Nasty injury. It is healing. Slowly. We are going forwards more often that backwards now. Hopefully I can save the quarter so she can be a nurse cow next year.
Aunty Del gets more beautiful every day.
Wine and honey mead bottled.
Now that the plonkers are gone we have more milk for butter and cheese.
Skunk pig. My favourite shot of Poppy so far.. this one is going in the Christmas Calendar.
The rooster wars slowed down.
Old Dog slowed down too but still manages to keep up.
I hope you all have a lovely day. There was so much that happened last month that I did not capture. I wonder what will happen now! Now that it is August.
