It has been days since I popped into the lounge. I am a co-worker down and full time farming and full time milling is making my brain melt.
I get up two hours earlier and literally RUN through three hours of farm chores before work – then do it all over again after work. One more week to go and then I will fall in a heap.
However, even with my extended hours things are going really well. The Airbnb has a long term guest so this makes life a lot easier.
The meat chickens are growing – the six piglets are growing much too fast and I have begun to slow the five hogs down the back. They are fed sprouts and vegetables with only a little corn candy now that they are approaching their selling weight.
The new ducks have started to lay which is pretty exciting. I picked up three small duck eggs this morning! So far so good!
The pullets are laying more each day and the Rainbow chickens ( Easter eggers) are showing no sign of wanting to leave their bohemian lifestyle and join the big flock.
I am at The Mill now, so I will get to work and drop in with you later in the day!
I am baking four loaves of bread this afternoon for various people – plenty of time to chat I hope!
