It may be end of year but there is plenty to do! Nick and Jaffa dug the large Johnson Grass from around the frangipani orchard. Okay… Jaffa really was just a watch dog!
When there are breaks between projects — there is always cleaning up after the chooks.
Though there is always much to do when building and operating a working homestead — at the end of each day we take time to enjoy the season — and every day is special in it’s own way… the joy today was a majestic sunset!
Jaffa the new farm dog has been getting used to life on the land. SO much to do… sniff thousands of new smells, chase goats, press against his new Daddies, be scared of thunder, and repeat… it makes even a young dog tired.
Drove 40 minutes South to Yandina Markets to pick up our new dog – Jaffa (male Kelpie cross).
Brett planted (sage, lemongrass, garlic chives, basil from cutting, chicory, mustard greens, rocket) and fertilised the garden.
Jaffa is obedient and smart but is suffering from separation anxiety so he won’t leave your side. Tried to leave him in the Goat pen overnight but he cried continuously and ripped a whole in the wire fence and came running into the container and woke us up. Then I tied him to a tree outside the container while I slept in the hammock for a couple of hours to keep him company. When it started to sprinkle at 11 pm I went inside and left him at the entrance of the container on his bed. Surprisingly not much winging after that and then we all went to sleep.
