Finally - back at the farm after three months' absence. Everything is in bud, weeds are rampant, grass knee high (not really - close to). And then we were hit with massive winds the day before yesterday and more forecast for today. Not good news for pollinating and fruit set. Another interesting growing year ahead.
The chooks Bali Resort collapsed the other day. Now all they have for shelter is the McMansion, which is way too tall to provide them with cover against driving rain. The builder has suggested another small structure. But that's presuming that our lovely bird-brains have the sense to use it; they rarely sheltered in the "resort".
Despite the wind and rain the farm manager is insisting on weeding and collecting cut grass. If he were any where else he'd be sensibly sitting in warmth, reading his ipad. Silly bugger!
It's good to be back, but also frustrating as I'm not fully recovered - the arm is only about 75% strength and quickly gives out, and the legs soon indicate their dislike of standing. Oh well - slowly does it, I guess.
