Sunday morning and the Airbnb guests are happy. The piglets are digging up to their ears in their nice soft pig garden. The ducks laid TWO eggs this morning and Tima and Tane are fighting over the biggest Zuchinni known to pig-kind.
A good Sunday morning except for our usual inclement internet connection making it impossible to load the photos early this morning.
The Six are getting big now. They have cleared their field and are looking for trouble. And looking LIKE trouble. Soon they will escape and then I will move them to the autumn field. There comes a time when they need stronger fencing.
Molly needs nothing but more food. More, more, more she says. I am eating for Nine. Her Eight have begun to nose around in her food bowl but they are not consuming too much yet. They chew on her greens more than anything. By week three they should be eating solids.
Not these solids! The chickens eat these though. If I spare any – which I won’t.
I am having trouble finding good grains now that my GM free feed grain supplier went under. I can get the corn from a local farmer and am fast talking another farmer into transitioning a few acres into organic, spray free for oats and barley. But these things take a lot of time. Years really. In the meantime I am sprouting what I have to make it go further.
The Thai chili’s are turning red now. I hang them to dry and just cut down what I use as necessary through the winter. They are my favourite chili. The plants are valiantly growing in a very weed overgrown bed.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Back to work for me.
WEATHER: Still cloudy and mild. Very humid though. There is a bit of rain around so the cows are still off the ‘good’ pastures to encourage growth for the autumn.
