Very quick blog this week. Must thank our volunteers and working shares for doing tremendous work helping with the Thursday harvest, transplanting and weeding. This work is very, very important to us, enabling us to get far more done than otherwise. We got a lot done and had an enjoyable time doing it. Anca, Jacob, Ken, Suzanne. Thanks very much.
We get nowhere though, in our efforts to build a shelter, a building for the pickup of vegetables. We did get some more work done on the chicken house but quite a bit more work remains undone. We may not be able to do the laneway changes that would ease the Thursday traffic congestion. That will have to wait for another week at least. We do spend a lot of time working the garden and that of course is always the priority
We have gotten small amounts of rain during the week but not a lot. Just enough to keep things from drying out too much but it would be good to get a real good soaking. In spite of not having gotten a lot of rain, things are growing quite well, just look at our weeds.
The animals are all well and the colt Leucan grows bigger and no tamer. We’ll get to him before long as we need to at least start getting him to come up to us and allow us to handle him. We’ll then slowly train him to some basic commands such as come, fetch, roll over, sit, heel, shake a paw … oh wait, that’s the dog’s training, horsies are somewhat different. We could teach him some of that, just to be different.
