Hubby has been busy all day. He has planted three extra fruit trees and staked fifteen more, of apples, plum, cherries and pears. Did you notice amber in the background? She is looking over the stonewall.
He then brought a wheelbarrow of muck to each tree and spread it at the base.
The orchard is looking loved now. I'm very proud of his work!
I noticed that some of the willow cuttings are starting to take. I need to keep the pony out of the paddocks as he keeps stepping on them!
Amber went out today for the first time in the big field. She was not very happy about this! She spent the day mooing and following hubby around by the fence line. I think she might be in heat!
We still do not have the milking machine working. It is not producing enough vacuum. Hubby has tried tightening the belt and did a total disassembly and still doesn't understand why!
Either way, we know it is a sample problem, just too damn simple for us to fix. He will visit a neighbouring dairy farmer this evening to see if he has any ideas. We have asked about five people so far and they all assure us it is a simple problem/fix but don't have any suggestions.
I spent some of the day with my little girl building a woodpile by the porch door for the approaching week. The boys were busy exploring for bugs!
Happy St.Patricks Day...
It was too cold and wet for us to bring the children to the parade this year.
What did you do for St.Patrick's Day if anything ?
