Continuing with our run of rotten luck the bees have died probably from Colony Collapse Disorder but will never be really sure (will try to get Rick to post something about this in due course). So the hive has come home and the honey is slowly being extracted. It’s yummy and there’s lots of it, but it’s a bloody shame.
I went to the farm today without the dogs and put the chickens in their run so they could have a dirt bath and soak up some rays, I had literally turned my back for 5 minutes and a fox had made it’s way in to the run and killed one chicken and had started on another, I caught it in the act and it scarpered but looks like the one it hadn’t finished off is not in a good way. She’s recovering in her coop with the last remaining hen from our original batch. Lesson learnt, don’t let chickens in their run unless we have at least one hunting dog with us.
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
