The air and skies are thick with gloomy thundery rain this morning – my first morning back on the farm after a busy couple of weeks in Australasia. However I am raring to go and enthusiastic about getting this season’s farming underway back here on the farm in Illinois.
There is a lot to do.
Everyone is looking happy and healthy. But the barns are in desperate need of cleaning out. I need to get ready for piglets and calves.
Tia is definitely developing an udder and is pregnant for sure. Aunty Del, as usual, is playing her cards close to her chest.
Molly the sow is also not giving anything away either. But none of them have due dates this month.
Today I will begin to clean out the farrowing pen and in a few days I will swap the Six into the field then Molly will come out of the field and into the farrowing pen.
I need to order feed and more straw and hay.
More on that tomorrow! Suffice to say I am BACK ON THE FARM and the Kitchen’s Garden daily farm journal blog is back in action.
See you tomorrow!
