- Just picked up our third lot of chooks/ducks. We tried it a little differently this time – free-ranged over a smaller area, kept the food up to them a bit more, kept them a week or so longer. The smallest is over 3kg and the biggest is over 4kg. They’re so big that the guy who runs the poultry processing place came out to ask me about them. And then he charged me extra. On a related note, we need to go and get a new freezer tomorrow…
- Planning a veggie patch so large that you need to use a huge rotary hoe may be ambitious. Realising that you need to use your tractor might push it to over-ambitious. Ending up having to get your farmer neighbour to use his giant tractor might push it firmly into the realms of the ridiculous. On a related note, we’re good to fence off our housing-block sized veggie patch this weekend. WooHoo!
- For the curious amongst you, yes, a chainsaw IS a precision fencing instrument.
- Linhda set fire to the compost bays. Again.
