Just A Mish Mash
This post is just a mish mash of things that have taken place over the last few weeks, I have been taking photos but never got them into a post.
Martin built me a water tower that will take 2 IBC tanks behind the poly tunnels, these are reserve tanks and we pump the water from other tanks to fill these and I use them for the poly tunnels,
The kids have been playing hide and seek in the hollow tree
The Alpacas using there scratching brushes
Tess can now sit on command and stay but I cant take more than three paces away from her, not bad for an old blind deaf dog that has never had training.
I had the chimney alight one evening, for no other reason than I found a wasp nest in it.
The water tanks were getting very low we didnt have any rain as such for about a month
The nasty angry broody spent three days in chicken jail, to break her broodiness.
Broody chickens damage eggs trying to get them all in one nest.
No sooner broke one broody and we had another, I set up a nest with 6 eggs and popped her in there she is sitting tight on the eggs.
I picked up a couple of pineapples, sliced them up and got them in the dehydrator
I have set the tops and keeping fingers crossed that they put down roots.
The dried pineapple makes a tasty snack.
I stewed a load of rhubarb as a base for crumble its now in the freezer ready for when we have visitors.
Made another couple of goats cheeses one is rolled in lemon pepper and the other in smoked paprika with dried garlic
Went to the plant fair in the village and bought some Irises an Astilbe and a Valerian now all planted
Playing with a cardboard box
even Martin had to get inside, Tess did as well as Sol its like having kids sometimes.
Well that is my mish mash of a post showing some of the going on's over the past couple of weeks. 👍
