Today, I ventured into the garden with the Stihl strimmer and spent three hours hacking down Weeds, fast-shooting Weedy trees(grow fast but don't give out much heat when burnt) and long grass.
It looks like next year we will have to get a piggy or two to go through the orchard and dig up all the roots of these pesky plants and eat all the grass. This requires careful planning and some new fences or some of our beloved departed pets may make a return from the grave

We've been slimming down our rabbit collection since Andy broke his Achilles and today we swapped out our remain 3 rabbits for a new set in September. It gives a us time to repair the hutches; makes our animal sitters lives a little easier and reduces our grain purchasing as the remain animals can live off the grass and things growing on the farm

Whilst topping up our animal feeds, we found this monster dead rat. Though it is scary that there are monstrous rats on the farm. It seems that one of the cats(probably Hobbes or the ghost of Jess) took it out. Another reason Why we'll always have farm cats

She was a lovely,friendly dog who always loved to hug (aka lean on you) and was always hungry and never looking where she was running .
She never had it easy, she had a dodgy womb which was removed, eyelid trouble and many other scrapes and issues.
In her time, she killed a sheep, a snake and numerous chickens and cats but in the end death got her.
Another reason why this world needs to be renewed and restored.
Goodbye old friend

Are we weathering the storm or trying to hard to make something happen? I just don't know
