Yesterday John and I brought the two steers Daisy’s Bobby and Queenie’s Bobby back from the West barn so they could munch in the Daisy Mistress paddock. It is deep and lush and perfect for fattening these two. The boys are back!
The stock trailer will stay in there for shelter and shade.
Just when you thought it was safe here is another sleeping kitten. She slept like this for hours. It was a sleepy kind of Sunday afternoon.
Tima is still showing no signs of imminent delivery. Just taking her time. She goes out to her summer house in the daytime and sleeps at night in her special pen, just in case.
Oatmeal cookies made with golden syrup. The secret ingredient.
This is the view from my kitchen window. If you look closely you can see that the wind is blowing fiercely. Here is a shot Federico took that shows the wind.
We are still working hard at getting the grounds in shape. Mowing to do.. gardens to wrestle into shape. And of course we will have all the girls here by the weekend then we really will be off running. It will be interesting – thi is the biggest group I have had since the young people began to come.
Good morning. today we will go back the West Barn and start the clean up there. The grass will be topped and put to bed until late summer when it is really hot then the animals go back to sit under the trees.where it is cool. Then back into the vegetable gardens. More planting and sowing today.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Love your friend on the farm,
