For days now the weather people have been warning us that heat is coming. Well, I guess it is here for a few days. It gets really hot tomorrow. But it is not the heat that is uncomfortable it is the humidity.
All the pigs will lay about in their wallows for the duration.
Sheila has the best wallow. Deep and on the North side of the barn.
Aunty Del has adjusted to milking once a day really easily. Her production is low enough for it to be a healthy option for her and now I don’t have to milk in the hot fly-full afternoons. She just hangs out under the trees and does not even think about it.
John cut a small field of hay yesterday so if a little breeze comes up with this heat those will be nice bales. But heat does court showers so we will see. Smaller cuts of fields at a time means less risk though.
I am glad not to be in charge of that department. Hay making is no longer my problem. And I will have only a small herd this winter so we don’t need massive amounts.
Well I had better zoom. More Airbnb people coming tonight. Then Anna has visitors coming on Friday for the weekend.
Look at Tane getting mudded up.
With all this mud you may not want to talk baking but my bosses wife sent us these gorgeous little muffins – down to The Mill yesterday- she made them from this apple bread recipe. I got her to take a photo of her recipe for you.
I think I really prefer photos of recipes with the cook’s personal notes. Much more fun.
Have a good one
