What A Day ............
I have so much to tell you today
I had a morning baking
Gluten free cakes
I shall post tomorrow on all of those
The fencers have now finished work
We have had post and rail fencing put around the food growing area
And around the apiary orchard area, I can now get my fruit trees planted and take all the orange netting down, there is metal pedestrian gates into each of the areas.
We have had 4 paddocks done with stock fencing, these four paddocks are for the Alpacas, the paddocks are in pairs and link with a gate, so we can move them from paddock to paddock so we can rest ground in between, now the paddocks are done we need to get some field shelters built then we can get some females.
On the subject of Alpacas today there was a big fight between them, I was just coming out of the cabin going to make a cuppa when i looked across the field all I could see was Nick Nak covered in blood, a lot of blood all over his head and down his neck, I went round to get C junior from next door to help we get Nick Nak into the enclosure so we could see what had happened.
We managed to get him his ear had been torn, he was sprayed with purple spray and washed down to get rid of as much of the blood as possible.
This is him after we had cleaned him up, he seems fine now. It gave a bit of a start when I saw him covered in blood, not something I want to see again in a hurry.
Mushroom Spawn part 2
I drained the straw and went onto the next bit of the instructions
break up the mushroom spawn and sprinkle it into the bag of damp straw
close up the bag with a paper towel as a bung and give the bag a good shake place somewhere with a temperature between 17-24c in a few weeks I should see lots of white threads running through the straw, will update when we get to the next stage.
I have been that busy today I haven't even opened this big box
It arrived this morning, hubby has just got home for the week end so the box can wait until tomorrow as well.
