After some excavation work way back in January we were left with a huge pile of rock ..............what to do with it all ?
It took most of the Winter months(and broken fingernails) but I have finally finished my Cairn .........
Over the months the stone has dried into different colors .
While I was playing with stones Hubby was building the new movable Chicken House on wheels !!
It has timber slats on the floor (gaps are small so no foxes can get in) and a wire panel for a door and at night time a blind that I pull down over the door and secure.
At present its resting under a group of gum trees for added protection
It didn't take the girls long to settle in and next morning there was the usual 6 eggs in the nesting box.
Err.......who was a tad lazy these last couple of weeks? the first sunny days of Spring were spent pulling weeds , 5 Ute loads !!! I kid you not !!!
A Wonderful spring surprise...........
Our first lamb for the season, Mum wasn't letting me get too close!
Its white with black patches like his dad, the breed are called Damara or fat tailed sheep, they shed their fleece over the Spring/Summer months so no need for shearing. Were hoping the other 7 ewes will have safe births over the next couple of weeks.
On the Veggie front there has been lots of growth over the last couple of weeks with some things starting to flower mainly the 2 year old Kale, Garlic, Peas, Leeks and coming along nicely and seeds planted in the cold frame are now ready for transplanting.
The broad beans are flowering too.............
Any Ideas?? Oh well I suppose the chickens will enjoy eating the leaves !
