Do you remember the mucky area down the back after the digger came through, that John tilled and sowed in the wild flower seeds? Well, we mixed the wild flowers with oats and alfalfa to give the bed some weight. And look!
Lush. (All the rain has helped) It is growing wonderfully, many varieties of plants and not a thistle in sight!! Those are sunflowers reaching up too. There are so many varieties of midwest wild flower in there. I think we might be able to look forward to quite the display.
John and I cleaned up the elm that fell in the lightning strike, cleaving the walnut in two. The terrible thing is that the walnut is still alive.
And we could not bear to chainsaw it down. So, stupidly, we have lifted it back up off the ground and kind of winched it back together, as much as it could bear. I cannot imagine that it will survive for long though the leaves are very perky but I love this little tree, maybe it will grow on like this for a while. Stranger things have happened at sea.
I asked for him to bring his own bedding with him so at least some of the smells around the pig will be familiar. I am not sure how much he can see yet.
There is a pile of straw in the corner under the window to go below his blankets. We will just have to play it by ear at first and see what he wants.
