Herbie went out with the new tractor and moved poop around to air and dry it, and the front tyre blew, poof. He said it startled the cows, and he came limping back to the barn.
I made pizza for lunch, which turned out all right. Put some new ingredients on it that I hadn't tried previously - water chestnuts and spiced up the tomato sauce with fennel seeds and red pepper.
Made chocolate cupcakes, square ones and round fluted ones with a hole in the middle. Mixed up a Marscapone cheese / fresh strawberry filling and topped them off with a piece of fresh strawberry. Cut the square ones in half and but the cheese strawberry mixture like a cake filling, then topped them with chocolate / coconut icing.
Last night Herbie shaved off his beard. I'm still not used to his smooth face, keep looking at him.
Gave the sheep another bale of hay this morning. I take grain down to the bottom of the garden, then while they are busy with the treat, Herbie takes the fence panel off, drives the tractor with the bale into the pasture, then we fasten the cattle panels around it and Herbie re-attaches the fence panel. Really need to find the gate hardware I bought for this purpose last year, it would be easier once we have a large gate there. Also need the put one of the solar fencers in there with a strand or two on the inside of the fence to keep the sheep from breaking it. Need to put more of those 12 ft metal pipes into the ground for it first though.
