We passed by many beautiful paddocks that were a sea of glorious yellow canola, such a stunning sight at this time of the year.
When we were about 25 miles from our property we noticed a thick column of smoke rising into the air.
The next morning another ewe had a beautiful baby lamb, she was a new mum, an another ewe was trying to bully her and take the lamb off her for herself(even though she had no milk to feed it)
We had brought up with us 5 sets of metal shelving to eventually build and put into my soon to be walk in pantry after the laundry fixtures are moved up to the shed into the new laundry room that is in progress.We decided to empty the old cupboard and erect the first shelf unit.
We decided that we would add a watering system to our orchard that we started last visit. Brian buried black poly irrigation tubing and added a spray at each tree, and then hooked this all up to a battery operated timer to water the fruit trees at regular intervals even when we are back on the coast.
Our neighbours had given us a bag of oranges, they said they were not good eating oranges and would only be fit for juicing or marmalade, and as I already had made enough marmalade for our use, I decided to juice them and can it.
We have had a really busy time, and I will show more of it in another post. The satellite internet service doesn't always want to co-operate here at the farm, and what would take me 20 minutes to post on the coast has taken me nearly 90 minutes tonight,so I will leave it there.
So until we meet again, which will be soon I hope !
