THE TURKEY HOUSE MESS

TODAY I am going to relocate the ducklings to the floor of the turkey house.  Ducklings grow fast – they are only just a week old. But already they are too big for that tub. They need lots of room to grow and make a mess in.  Read More

A MUCH GENTLER PROCESS

28-00528-006

I am finding the touch screen and (now) silent keyboard of the Yoga Book a much calmer, quieter and gentler start to the day. As you know I work on the images for my blog the night before, load everything onto the page then at 5am I awake and begin to write. It is nice to not have the clack clack of a conventional keyboard – I am a key basher, and the halo keyboard has stopped that behavior right in its tracks. But enough of technology. Meanwhile back on the farm … Read More

I LIKE DUCKS TO WATER

 

SOMETIMES there are little Instagram videos that you just can’t miss. This is a milestone moment. I gave the ducklings a dish of water and they took to it – Like Ducks to Water! Read More

Well, that is how Tima walks.  She moves ponderously across her field, her body swinging from one side to the other as she plods along.  Widely. Feet up. feet down.  Methodically. Fatly. And quite quickly too when there is food involved.  Read More

And back in they went the animals. Two by two and three by three and even six.  Into their beds and corners. Out they come to eat and back in they went to wait.  I felt myself following suit.  Read More
