A PIG face! Painted in MUD by a PIG! Do you see it? We have to put this on a T shirt.
The home fields are looking more and more like a shanty town.
The White Rocks have come out of the Turkey House and are in the metal chicken tractor. Today Alissa and I will drag up the woden chicken tractor and as I identify the males I will put them into the travelling coop to fatten. The hens go in with hen house and become next springs layers.
Hopefully John will help me extend the chook house roosting accomodations this winter – but we will see. My eggs are the most consistent sellers on the farm so getting a little larger is worth it as long as my little farm can sustain al those birds.
We cut the hay today – looking at the weather, the rain has shifted forward a day so I should have cut it yesterday. But there you are. We might make it. One again I am putting all my eggs in one basket and cutting the lot.
Even though the rain has shifted to Monday night – it is going to be hot and windy Monday – a bonus.
Alissa leaves on Wednesday (and is coincidentally going to the same farm on an island in one of the Carolinas that Alex went to in the spring) and I need her help getting the bulk of it into the barn so I really, really hope I do not get rained on – for many reasons.
I hope you have a lovely day.
