Love this kids T shirt.

On the weekend we had a lovely group of city folk come down for a farm lunch. And I just loved this childs T shirt. A message for everyone of every age as we move into the future that is tomorrow.  Look at the healing on this side of Wai. The vet is calling him …

Farm to table

Another big farm to table lunch being prepared as I write. Amanda and I will be cooking all morning then eating and drinking all afternoon. We will be seating twelve. Today I am featuring great, big, juicy heirloom tomatoes.  I am off out to pick them right now. John has dug fresh new potatoes for …

Wai’s eyes

While we forked hay up into my hay wagon and dragged the trailer up to the corridor paddock to make the hay into a haystack…   A very rough looking beginning to the haystack but it will do.  The grass had been down too long to mold into a waterproof shape.  Wai shouted out from …

As the trees grow

Every year I plant as many trees as i can buy or grow or find. And one thing I have noticed about the mornings is how loud it is with bird song this year.  Especially the cardinals. I seldom see them as they love to be high in the trees and nest in the thickest …

An announcement as we run

Storm Watching

It was so hot outside that when I took my camera from the house to the field to take photos of the storm the lens had fogged up. The storm was fast moving though so I took photos anyway. There was some pretty incredible thunder and quite the lightning show. After we had let Wai …

No Hay Day

Yesterday – an hour before the tractor arrived to bale our hay –  it began to rain, just a little at first then the skies opened up and it rained and rained all morning.  We even went in and worked on rainy day jobs – sowing seeds and baking! And last night we had a …

Hey Hay Day

Looks like we are baling today.  Fingers crossed as there is a shower imminent. There was a sprinkling of rain in the night too but not enough to stop us. So if the next storm goes round I will press PLAY.  The air is very humid so it is going to be  rough day. Dripping …

The Flying Scots-Man

Our Scotman has arrived on a plane and now we have a full complement of workers.  Last night he and the girls all went for a walk after dinner – I think they are going to get along just fine.  Wai the rescue potbelly pig refused to let Alissa cover him while I was away …
