A Watery Day

A watery day here with the sky saturated with the stuff, which sprays down and mists up the crevices in the hills.  Now that the ducks know about water they queue up for their twice daily supervised swimming lessons

Today their bath was seasoned with chopped up lettuce

Construction proceeds on providing for the water needs of Spot and Bert.  We wonder if this is can do the job without being excavated

After using the thoughtfully provided concrete nesting spot for her first brood the swallow is bringing up family number two on a more precarious ledge

although the nest is fully lined with hen feathers.

The lack of sun means the tomatoes are taking an eternity to ripen

  1. Hi! Can we bring Spot on Tuesday morning and Bert on Friday evening. Phil will come from Keith’s place with Bert. Please send me your holding number and your full address so I can set up the farm to farm movement on Bpex online. I will be coming with Phil so I can show you the online process. Btw you are officially a farm!!

    Officially I will put that we are setting off at…. I will let you know after I speak to Phil, he is down the land as I write. It will probably be early as he will use food to entice her into the trailer ok.

    Excited! Roz
