By the time I got back the 3 lambs were outside the lower barn enclosure, of course, Ruth and the boy went straight back in, Wanda wanted to play, so I ended up chasing her around the sheep enclosure, watching her carefully so that she didn't eat any of the roses en-route, caught her, carried her back and dumped her over the fence. Put Rosco in as well. Was thinking of maybe leaving him out until we had sorted the fox problem, but he is too strong for me to control and he doesn't listen. Loves to chase cars down the driveway, probably learnt from Anni, but he is aggressive about it, it's not just the chase like it is for Anni.
Have the one remaining guinea calling that sorrowful little chip chip sound, looking for the others. Going to have to wait until next year to get more as the hatchery in Borculo where I bought them from isn't hatching anymore this year, I asked. Of all the guineas that have been eaten on the farm, and none by us.
Herbie has been working on the Swisher push weedy wacker, but it is not being co-operative.
Looking at the weather it is forecast rain most days for the next 10 days, so hopefully the pastures will grow, grow, grow, and then we'd like some dry weather to cut and bale the hayfield please.
Put the lambs and some of the sheep up on CL again last night. Need to move some of them out, well, maybe more than some :).
I've been doing weeding out in the rain. It's not unpleasant as it isn't cold, and the weeds come up so much easier out of the wet mud. Started with my fake crocs, but they kept getting sucked down, so removed them and did it barefoot. Took the ring off my toe as I didn't want to lose it, then squelched mud between my toes - been ages since I've done that. Found one of those huge tomato worms on the Kentucky tomato plant, plucked it off, placed it in a rock and smashed it to green goo with another rock.
Checked all the other tomato plants, none seem to be being eaten, fingers crossed.
Just finished some prawn and vege pasta, so now back out there to do some more weedin
