Tidy up time

Spring has just sprung and it’s getting time for tidy ups – spring time cleaning but outside.

Jolan is helping with chopping that big branch of a tree that fell down over a year ago – all nice and dry now for the wood burner.

Wiring up the fences

Last year we started electrifying pretty much all paddocks, so now we have to dig in the cables to bridge the gates. A good job while the ground is still soft and getting pretty much impossible once the lovely clay ground dries up.

In autumn we dug out the drainage trenches and parts of the pond, now is a good time to dig that final meter of trench next to the bridge that we could not access any more with the digger and that was too soggy around for foot access. Now that the drainage worked, the final cut can be made.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.

Quiet times

While we had no guests, have not been out to see any people and had no coffee other than the home made one due to COVID-19 lockdown level 4 and 3, we fixed a few things around the farm, moved animals around the paddocks and got more feed in.
