Look at the healing on this side of Wai. The vet is calling him a marvel.
Then yesterday morning I awoke to no internet again. Our land sits very low so no-one is sure how we have signal at all actually and the summer herons keep sitting on Johns tower breaking bits off it.
But all is well again for the meantime. Especially for pigs and dogs and chickens in the hay field. We have a new batch of chickens being delivered this week these are dual purpose so when they have grown a bit I will take the hens into the chook house and the roosters in to the chicken tractor. For mid summer meat chickens I like to have a slower growing bird – the fast growing meat birds get too stressed in the heat. These are White Rocks. An old heritage breed that I have not raised before so we will see.
Amanda (who is on her way back to Texas today) and I decided to catch the train for Chicago yesterday, I have not been anywhere at all so far this summer so it was a wonderful change. We had lunch and puddled about the shops. Alissa and Micheal had the farm all in hand which enabled me to take some time off.
Today Chicago John of The Bartolini Kitchens cookbook (one of the most used cookbooks in my kitchen) is coming down to the farm to show us how to make ravioli. He has filled my freezer with hay-making ravioli in the past. It is becoming a summer tradition. This time we get a lesson too! If I have time and my hands are not too covered in flour I will document it for you.
I hope you have a lovely day.
We will have a delicious day.
