Hugo is working very hard cleaning up the grapevines, mowing, feeding and pulling the chicken and turkey tractors. Doing all the waters and in between playing with the dogs and the terrorist cats. The dogs are sleeping particularly well at night – quite worn out.
Tonight Hugo is cooking. This is an exercise in translating his grocery list from French to English. Plus if we can find all the ingredients it will be an exciting delicious French dinner. So today we will be going to the supermarket. He has already made his butter and gathered his eggs and is casting his eyes across the vegetables. Though just quietly I am not sure he is a vegetable kind of guy!
Pat has been working in the garden and keeping the dehydrator hard at work. We may have had a sad year in the garden but there is still lots of food out there.
Three of Pania’s four eggs hatched yesterday and these chicks look like they are going to be Blues like their mother. Not a piebald amongst them. All healthy and fit. We got them out of the barn in the nick of time too as the bad barn chickens scattered Pania’s replacement eggs when she was downstairs the other day. They are a bad lot those barn chickens. And I was worried about the cats.
The farm animals have all settled down after Poppy’s rampage through so many of the fences. I filled the wallow in her pen and she lay there and huffed at me for the day.
I hope you have a lovely day,
Love your friend on the farm
