Odd pictures

Ewes and lambs hanging out in the new paddock we fenced on Jean and Hamilton's land to the north. The rock ledges are good for playing "King of the Hill," or in British "King of the Castle."

Followed by a shot of the spray foam tractor tire repair. Is it a good system? How long does it last? Ask me in the fall.

Spray foam, cable ties (tie-wraps) and duct tape (bodge tape) are essential supplies for running this old homestead.

And then the piglet, lying down with the chickens. We put this little girl in the big pig pen and right away she started relating to the birds. She slept all night right next to and even touching our currently-broody Buff Orpington.

She must be lonely. More piglets coming the weekend, should fix that.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
