… the chickens on the tin house while Alex continued to dig out the winter accumulations from the chook house.
I forgot Sheila was out and about.
And how tall she is.
She and Mr Flowers helped them clean up.
Above is one of the tables of vegetable plants. We have another table full and the glasshouse is still hard at work germinating. Note all the tomatoes. There are also a lot of cabbages this year for the cows garden and for sale of course. The cows garden grows vegetables for me to cut up for Lady Astor at milking time.
These pigs are almost too big for me to handle. We send Alex in with the buckets at feeding time – he is taller and stands up to their battering ram techniques better than I do.
Well it is one of those days when I don’t have a lot to tell you – we are continuing to prepare and plant up the late spring gardens. Two days without rain has been great.
In fact if the weather continues to settle in the next few weeks, we might be able to get some hay made in early May. The alfalfa is growing very fast.
As I am low in conversation here are a few links to past April 18ths. The cows are late showing signs of calving this year, I think. In past years the calves were already on the ground. Hmm.
Have a lovely day.
