Maintenance Mode

The appearance of a stray dog in our garden has been a wake-up call for us to do some hardcore maintenance on the farm.The work has started with repairing the inner fence partition and install fly-screen windows. The inner fence has been secured by chickenwire tied to the remainder of the wooden fence. The hard work was mildly frustrating as the stray dog is still around (i think) but who cares when my birthday hammock works!

Still to go:
  1. Getting a metal gate to the pigsty and then get a piggywiggy
  2. Getting the aga flue to the chimney Brest cemented in before winter, The aga should heat the kitchen and we should be able to cook on/in too.
  3. Tree felling with Laci (Forest ranger to the stars) - We've 3 dead big tree which could take out the kitchen and/or a new fence. Chainsaw-tastic
  4. Outer perimeter fence installation- The puppies are growing fast and need more space
  5. Orchard tree trimming/planting - Time to remove the dead branches and shape the trees for better fruit in the new years
  6. Setup up the veggie patch- we need to relocate some trees, fix the fence to keep dogs out and plant suitable winter veg
  7. Weeding - We've a batch of nasty weeds which are full of a glue like substance. Hopefully piggywiggy will eat them all
  8. Fix the potato store!
So we've a quiet summer/autumn lined up!
