It was really hard to get a sharp image of the piglets yesterday. Molly was in an unreliable mood so I just hung the phone down into their bedroom to see what I got and all I got was a whole lot of out of focus snouts as they rushed over to investigate the new toy.
The high winds yesterday did wonders for the sky.
And through the night we endured a few violent squalls. More of the same today I think.
I have begun to bring the cows ( Aunty Del and Tia) into the yards for the night-times. Tia may be getting close. Her udder is small but lovely. It is hard to tell with a big heifer like her. Aunty still has a while to go. Her udder is really loose. No milk in there yet.
However it is best to get them in the habit of coming up to the barn – we don’t want any calves born on the West Bank. They can easily roll into the ditch and it is a coyote pathway. My pack has never been any trouble – well not so far but there is no point in plating offerings for them out there.
Still thirteen eggs from the ducks – every day like clockwork. And around forty eggs a day from the chickens.
The asparagus will be liking this wet day. I think we will have enough for a small feed by tomorrow.
I hope you have a lovely day.
