There is thunder sounding off in the distance this morning. Let’s hope the rain does not come until this afternoon. My hay is so, so close to being dry. But if it rains it rains. We will get it up eventually. Funny how I have completely lost my anxiety about such things.
All the yummy pig vegetables and eggs ready to be mushed into the grain.
Babies under the leafy weeds in the pigs garden. Leaf Trees to a tiny pig.
They played or slept and fed down there until bed time yesterday. She brought them all up in the evening.
A duck laid an egg yesterday! In one of the laying boxes of the little tin house they are sleeping in at night. The egg was small (the size of a medium chicken egg) but a wonderful sign. Like a pullet egg for ducks I suppose. Maybe there will be another one there this morning. Apparently they lay just anywhere and usually on the ground so I will have to do a proper search under the stock trailer where they hang out a lot.
OK. Time for me to get going. Let’s hope I can get the hay in today. Plus I need to go to the feed store and get some whole barley or oats to start the sprouts again. Both of these activities do not need rain. But it is looking pretty dark and cloudy this morning.
We will see.
