Progressing further towards official opening

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

We are slowly but steadily progressing towards our official opening. Plasterboard stoppers have finished, we can now start the painting and breaking through into the existing house. Plumbing to be finished next and floors to be laid. Deck balustrade and spouting to come.

Hope we’ll get much done before Christmas.

Watch the space.

Happy Earth Day 2022

The warm and humid weather produced lovely field mushrooms to be harvested. Earlier we harvested basil, limes and potatoes.

New critters have arrived

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.

More foraging

A few days ago there was finally a window with no rain and a bit of time, so managed to fill 4 feed bags with pine cones. Pine cones are excellent fire starters, full of resin and a rather large surface, thus burn really well, long and hot.
