Here is a bit of a photo update of where we are at. Not much has happened on the farm over the past couple of weeks, other than getting use to our new abode. We are enjoying the peace and quiet and Kobe-Li especially is loving living on the farm and loving his new school! Here are a few photos of people helping and a big thank-you goes to them, and soon there will some photos of the first real major addition to our subsistence farming life…the sheep (and alpacas)!
The bees have been moved (thanks Jon – copping 3 stings in the process of helping!). What a job that was! Firstly had angry bee trying to take me out at the old place and then after moving them and giving them 24hrs to settle, the damn things still were angry with me! I ran (and maybe screamed a little) and was chased a good 20m before either swatting them as I was smacking my head while they tried to land, or I out ran them… not sure but had a bloody sore head from hitting myself so many time after that!
Our house we sold had a hiccup in the sale settlement… hopefully all sorted by next week. Damn banks for not doing their job thoroughly!
Tomorrow will be full of fun and games firstly with Tano-Li’s 3rd birthday and secondly with getting the fences ready for the sheep! Bought a new tool to help with the fencing and it is going to be a hell of a lot easier than using a block and tackle (which I used in ealier fencing jobs) and a hand winch (also used in earlier jobs). Just looking at my new toy makes me want to fence!
