But back in the fifties today!!
And look who turned up.
Went to buy bolts at the hardware store and came home with chicks!
Fourteen of them. Eight …. and six ….
They are merrily eating out-of-date corn grits from the mill and snuggling under their light.
The rest of us are in the muck. I work like crazy on Sunday mornings trying to get the Bloody Bollocksy Housework done so I can get outside but look at it. Muck.
The farm is going into a lull now. No more raising hogs for Chicago. I lost in John’s words a ‘shitload of money’ this financial year. And that’s no good.
So- now that Jake has his restaurant up and running I will pull everything back small – feed my own people. And help John use the farm to feed the farm – it is more work but saves a lot of money.
Life changes – that’s how life is. No need to worry. Sheila snd Poppy are not worried. And
Chicks! 8 Olive Eggers and 6!Mystic Marans. I am cutting back!!
It is night time and I need to run out and check them before I make a cup of tea and go to bed.
I baked all day yesterday!
