I am sorry about the “Moo” but you know the rules!
And yes, that was rain coming in. It did not last long and also did not affect my farmer who had, just that minute, finished planting The Swamp in wheat.
The creek that is really a ditch.
And here are the big guys – the plonkers- down the back. They were hard to get down to the back fence for this shot. The coyotes are out every night lately and I know that my pack walk the outside of the fences as it borders the creek that is really a ditch. So the hogs very sensibly keep themselves down close to the farm buildings.
So far we all have an understanding. The coyote pack, who have a very strong leader because they have always been well behaved, keep their distance and we keep ours. She runs a tight ship. Like wolves the alpha male is actually an alpha female. They have quite a large territory that they manage so I only hear them a few days a month. Boo is running himself ragged making sure everyone understands the concept of ‘distance’. (The fat chickens in a transparent pen outside my bedroom window are not helping). As we know Ton has designated himself as back-up dog. He stays way back – way, way back – on the porch – barking “You go BooBoo. No worries – I got your back!”

Today is Sunday. Barn-work/Housework day. My last Airbnb guest arrives this afternoon – my second-to-last Airbnb guest left yesterday-so I will reset those rooms too. This last month of the Airbnb has paid for my travel to New Zealand this coming January ( we are going to the South Island this year; you and I). Both the last guest and today’s guest have been long term bookings 3 and 4 weeks consecutively. It is very easy for me when that happens.
No other weather apps are working this morning – but this one clearly shows the falling temperatures. Hopefully we get Uncle’s field ( the one that surrounds the house) planted in wheat on Monday.
Then we hope for not too much rain because this is organic seed – untreated and we don’t want it to rot in puddles. This soil is very dark, rich, and once it recovers its organic vitality, it will produce fantastic wheat for us to mill and me to make into delicious bread.
Have a great day!
Oh and the header shot is of last night’s dough see to proof – I will bake it this morning. Raisin, walnut bread! Perfect for Sunday breakfast!
