Wednesday, August 6, 2008


21mm of rain last night, snow on the hills and a cold southerly breeze. The pigs are up to their knees in mud and loving it also!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, after yesterdays little drama things have settled down. The roads are open and the ski traffic is once again buzzing along the highway.

We had an unexpected call from the guys at ‘Ingelara’ yesterday, they area Biodynamic farm on the Canberra side of Bredbo. Our garden guru has been busting to talk to them about Biodynamic farming for months, so when they rang she was very excited. They want to come and have a look at what we are doing and how we are doing it, in other words – they want to check us out. They are coming out on the weekend so it’s a full calendar for the next week. Better get the cook on the job!

With the rain we are starting to see the first green shoots come through in the paddocks. It’ll soon be time to yard up the pony so she doesn’t get founder. We’ve also got a few little boars to castrate – our midwifes favourite job!!!! What doe’s she say about it – “As long as I don’t have to catch them!”
