Every year our daughter’s school holds an agricultural day, where the children have to raise a farm animal and show it at school. Jolan has created a video diary about her calf Cheeky. I think she’s done an awesome job with her idea, have a look and enjoy .
The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.
Within days, the hot summer weather had moved on and made space for moderate temperatures with rain and fog.
The warm and humid weather produced lovely field mushrooms to be harvested. Earlier we harvested basil, limes and potatoes.
It’s the time of the year again. It’s very dry, the soggy paddocks have dried up and it’s the perfect time to dig out all the drains.
Lots and not so much happened. New ducklings, alpaca maintenance, Christmas, holidays and lots of animal fun.
It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.
