Torrential rain out on the plain. At least it was not for long. But it poured.
Great for the fields. Bad for the harvest. We need those beans out of the big field so we can get our first healing cover crop into the ground. And the thunderstorms pulled my chook house cleaning to a halt.
Not that I was short of other work.
More rain in the forecast today but it is not raining today so I am going to get busy fast. Piglet is fed and back (reluctantly) to bed now I must get busy with the outside pigs.
Yesterday between showers I picked up a load of sunflower meal to add to my pig mix. It makes their food look like dirt but they gobbled it up! 18 percent protein and another by-product. My favorite kind of feed. I got 600 pounds of the sunflower meal and a hundred pounds of his special mix of chicken feed to try ( – all at least GMfree and some organic. It smells divine! ) for 132 dollars.
We will see.
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: oh look – most of the rain has gone North. That’s good.
