Bringing It Down
Last week in the high winds one of the Larch trees at the end of the drive split and the top broke off and was in a very precarious position, s it had to come down before if fell and blocked the drive or worse still hurt some-one.
This was Martin's priority job this week end
I did warn him what would happen if he let it fall on the telephone cables on the other side of the drive
also he had to keep in mind the neighbors stock fence on the other side
He did a great job judging were it was to fall
And no damage was done
It has all been cut up now and added to next years wood pile
I think we will have see about re-planting and removing trees from this corner of the drive, they are very tall and in a wind exposed
area, I am surprised we havent had more trees down.
While he was doing this I was cleaning out the goat house, goats are so smelly and dont have good housekeeping skills, they happily use there beds as toilets.
Not like the Alpacas and pigs that use middens, the chicken house was given a good clean out and a good dousing of preventive treatment for parasites.
I got out the incubator and will be setting some eggs in the net day or so.
Last night it was a bottom of the fridge stir fry for dinner
I added in all the beansprouts that I had been sprouting this week.
will get some more on the go now.
It was Mothers day yesterday, I got chocolates, a milk pail planter
and some Comfrey plants, a pink flowing one and a white flowering one, I didn't bring any Comfrey with me and last year I kept looking to buy one but never saw one to buy.
Now I have two different ones.
When the greenhouse and small poly tunnel come down I am using that area as a medicinal herb growing area, well that's the plan.
Talking of herbs my coriander is up
