The Farmers In The Dell

After a rainy, sleety morning, this afternoon the weather fined up enough for some farming. Truth is, it's always fine enough for farming, even when it's pouring. Farming waits for no man - or woman.

Paddock by paddock we rounded up the goats

gave them a pre-kidding dose of drench

and where necessary trimmed their feet.

After all the recent rain the Mole Creek is in full flow.

And after last night and this morning's wild winds several large tree branches have come crashing down.

After a quick cuppa we headed out to the orchard to assess damage there and do some weeding.

I'm back in the city tomorrow. It's days like this I'll miss. Keep up the good work, Farmdoc.


  1. I'll do my best, WriterBee. But it'll be less fun without you here working with me. xx

  2. Keep up the good work, both of you. A great post WB, a great insight into life down in the Creek.
