Doing more fencing and just generally enjoying the sunshine  :sunshine:

Today was 2nd day of trying to not aggravate distressed shoulder/upper arm:  went to bed Thurs with all well, woke up Fri in agony !!
It's a bit better, but I'm pleased I don't have more than a couple of doggies to tend to!

Processing the chicken poo crust i skimmed off a few weeks ago into a small enough grade to use on the plot as fertiliser.
Part way through thinking WHY am I doing this?

Had a full day away from both the smallholding and work yesterday. Went sailing, then when I came back made a pint sized guitar amplifier (which sounds amazing). The jobs here can wait a bit longer - I needed that.

Same here - I've given to my nearest neighbours and to my kids, and to anyone doing work for me.  Next idea is leave at teh bottom of the drive for folk to help themselves - so long as they don;t try to help themselvesto my Wyandottes  ::)  then I'd be  >:( >:( >:(

Same here too. Got the raised beds all ready for this years crops. Also planted 30 rhubarb seeds with the view of donating the plants that germinate to some friends and neighbours so they can have fresh rhubarb in years to come.
I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies. This is me!

Limbing an ancient ash tree to make space for relocating my chicken coop and continuing fencing....... that'll be my script for the next month at least  :roflanim:

Never had much luck keeping them, but usually because they get eaten! Hopefully will get a better crop this year if the frosts haven't killed the blossom.

finished bagging and freezing the apple juice, 32 ltr in all , chickens going mad for the pulp I have frozen some as goat treats later on. Juice is sweetish with just a hint of tartness, best served chilled !
