There will be a lot of people in and out of the farm and the house while I am away and the last thing I need is a runaway pig taking advantage of an open door. So I have Poppy proofed the Dairy Mistress paddock for the big pigs and Tima-proofed her fields for the little pig.
Queenie and her flerd will have the run of all the back fields that have been locked up for a few months nowso there is piles of feed.
Hello Aunty Del.
I have never before had this much feed in the fields at this time of year. And if the killing frosts hold off for another month or so and they usually come at the end of November – well, except last year) then we will go into the winter in good shape. In fact there is so much grass growth that yesterday I had to take the weed eater to the West Barn and trim under the low electric fence wires.
Hullo Son of Neanderthol Man.
The barn chickens have their feed blocks upstairs (with Alison’s undead chook and her brood of chicks) and downstairs with these runaways and the peacocks and guineas.
What I have to do before I leave is get the No Shooting signs back up. I do not want any hunting through my fields when I am away. The dogs will be in full on guard mode and so it is best if hunters stay away.
This was our sunset last night. It is getting to that time of year.
And now I must fetch my hammer again and finish what I started yesterday. I hope you all have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farmy
PS. Tomorrow I am going to announce the next Fellowship Book so you can think about it while I am away. I will set up a page for you to register your interest in writing for it. You will have much longer to write this one and the men can write too I hope, I am VERY excited about it! We have so much fun ahead.
