Last night I thought I would begin the training to get the young ducks in the Quack House with the old ducks and with very little herding they all just walked in.
Though it was very noisy in there once the little ones discovered they were trapped. I was caught by surprise also, I had not expected that result and so I ran to gather more supplies and had to reopen the room and quickly put in more food and water- no way did I think it would be that easy. Apparently the bigger the flock of ducks the easier to herd.
That room will need daily cleaning now.
The hay is rolled and slowly cooking in yesterday’s warm thick humidity. If I do get three days dry I might even bring it in.
I have never been one to grow single species pastures and so I am pretty pleased with the second year of plantings in this field.
The winter peas are starting to flower and they are so delightful in my pastures that I am reluctant to let these mud monsters in to gobble them up!
Just as soon as I have time I will clear out the Tane and Wai’s sleep house. These rags all need a good shake. Did I tell you the cadet is coming again – once a week for the summer. I might get her to do the barn sunroom on Thursday.
Another week commences!
