Still no sign of babies from Molly. Nine eggs from the ducks. Over twenty four eggs daily from the chickens. The weather is, at last, warming up a little. And oh the mud.
After a winter that would not stay down – the temperatures going up and down like a tired yo yo this is what the cow’s races are looking like.
In fact the cows on the West Side are reluctant to walk out to the fields. I think the little ones are afraid they will sink like stones and never be seen again.
Today after work and after I have delivered all the sold eggs I will work with John on diverting the cows through another field.
When these areas dry up we will drag them to flatten them out then sow them in a summer mix.
Also today we have to get the asparagus compost into those beds. Things are getting behind.
The chicks are growing well but the ducklings won’t be here until the first of May. There was a bad hatching or something so I went to the back of the line. And I sent my order in in January. Very annoying!
Work at the mill is great but it does mean I work later in the night on the farm and I have not even started milking yet. However a little farm still needs a little outside income so it’s farmer can keep traveling to her children. That seems to be the way of it.
And I do like the work. Learning fast and working fast. Order your flour and I will pack it for you myself!
Have a great day. Or if not great at least see the greatness of having this day.
