Farmers Pierre and Liam are away for two weeks at tree felling school.
So its just us three and Jo-Jo the champion chook catcher.
We've been collecting and moving and feeding out and sorting and packing.
Yesterday my farmer boy took me on a tractor ride to get some bales of hay.
We rolled out those big, round hay bales, fenced them off and brought some chooks in.
Those chooks are working super hard preparing our garden beds for planting. They're kicking the hay about, fertilising it and scratching it all up and turning it into compost.
It's been fun having a tiny flock of house chooks again. Miss Pepper has been naming them and cuddling them at every opportunity. Farmer Bren has been calling me a permy (permaculture). I just like having them here.
This morning we used baskets to collect the eggs as an experiment and it felt old fashioned and fun.
Miss Pepper has been wearing her Griffin vest and Bren's Farmer boy beanie a lot and I've been wearing my old Lee overalls.
We've been singing and laughing and telling stories and silly jokes like;
Q. What do you call a cross between a kangaroo and an alpaca?
A. A woolly jumper!!
I'm so tired.
I'm glad I froze big tubs of soup a few weeks back for dinners.
And I'm happy.
I love what we do.
What do you do?
Where are you?
What's going on this week?
Ciao chookens. xx
