Days are starting to get hot now, and in the afternoons the last place you want to be is out in the field with no shade. We run a split shift at the farm . A few hours in the morning and a few in the evening , and then a couple hours through out the day on other projects. Today that other project was to take Goosey for a swim in the irrigation storage tank (aka pool) these pools are such a blessing on so many levels .. the kids work hard, and being able to go in any time and cool off is such a blessing, and having water ready all the time for watering the plants and the animals is imperative when you are growing market gardens .
We have some new animals on the farm this week. Two piglets are a great addition. We are thinking maybe a few more , but don't want to have more then what will eat the food scraps and the garden waste. We don't want to get to the point that we need to buy them food , so we will watch and see weather we could feed a few more or just stop at two for now.
We have other new additions , Our ducks are sitting on three full nests, and tonight the eggs have started hatching.
We have some more great news .. Do you remember the big double kazan that we wanted to build for the canning ?
