The rains have come and much of the ground is now saturated. Many of our pathways have taken on a distinctive brown colour.
After being nearly dry this summer, the pond is filling.
And I’ve taken the pump out of storage to pump out the swales as there is more rain in the forecast.
We’ve planted some beds to winter vegetables…
…and built new beds for garlic planting.
Here are 2 & 1/2 cubic metres of compost ready for the garlic plantings starting later this month.
This weekend marked eight weeks for our kunekune piglets and so six of them were sold to new homes. Here is one of the remaining three. No more fighting over the scraps!
We have approximately 100 muscovies hatched this summer almost ready to be sold.
And these nine are just two weeks old.
Tractoring birds for the last three years has done wonders for improving soil quality and regrowth of favourable grasses.
And finally, we say goodbye to our three fabulous interns, Karen, Vera and Ali. The next two interns arrive tomorrow.
