For a while, it feels like the farm is a monster project which sucks the life out of us and that much is invested and little recuperated.
However, recent work hopes to break this trend. We've had two new fenced areas installed, one for the dogs and the other for our livestock.
Our dogs are masters of escaping from our inner garden and enjoying a chicken take-away at our neighbours' expense. So, to prevent them from being shot, we've built them a new areas. The new doggy den is large enough to enable them to roam around and secure enough that we don't have to worry about the awkward phone call from the neighbours. Also, they now have fancy new houses too :) We are also getting another fence installed across the garden which will give them a secondary running area.
The livestock area is now out-of-sight of the Crunchy the Destroyer and there are two sets of fencing separating the animals. the big plan is to have an rrea for goats, chickens, pigs and rabbits. The current residents include Piggy, one Rabbit and 3 Goat (1 billy 2 girls) which we are we are goat-sitting a neighbours' flock. We will be eating Home-made cheese for weeks :)
