I don't know why but I seem to have gone adrift the past few days, before I knew its Saturday.
Anyway its been a busy few days, making the most of the fine weather.
I got the asparagus bed top dressed with 10 bags of spent mushroom compost
And made a start cleaning down the cover of poly tunnel number 1
There was a lot of green algae, inside and out, its been a very dampish year, if the covers are not washed down it just builds up and blocks out much needed light.
I picked the rest of the Guava berries
They have a lovely citrus taste
I found a recipe for a liqueur I had enough to make a small bottle, it should be ready in about a month.
Mrs Dove has been sitting tight on her eggs
when she left to feed yesterday I managed to get a peek,
two eggs, not a brilliant photo I had to zoom in, I don't want to disturb her, hatching is due NOW, fingers crossed we will have 2 baby doves to spread peace and goodwill in time for Christmas.
There has been some lovely sunrises in the morning
A glorious morning the other day.
Right today's list is looming
Move the pigs there area has turned into a stinky muddy bog.
Clean out the goat house.
Clean out the chicken house.
its going to be a smelly dirty day, 👃😜
