Hope you had a great March.
There are signs of rain, and I am gearing up for planting season, and taking stock of what has done well this summer (fever tree/acacia karoo/senegalensia, guava, apricot, some granadillas, pomegranates, some almonds but not others, mulberry) and what has just survived (most citrus, avocado, pecans)
Here are some pictures from our month!
|Chickens have been struggling with fleas-- diatomaceous earth is really good for getting rid of fleas, but I think Lohman browns (the most standard/common breed of laying hens) seem more susceptible than Boschvelders.|
|The geese look threatening sometimes -- perhaps because they're as big as Hana-- but they're actually friendly and gentle with us.|
|Gentle with those little starfish!|
|Eli has started taking photos every day-- consistently it's his favourite memory of the day. All the photos that follow are taken by him.|
|Free-range guinea pigs. Perry-- Can you spot Little One in the background?|
Last month I shared Eli's story, and this month I wanted to share Noah's story, which he illustrated and wrote, and also narrated (Eug makes some of the boys' stories into animation for them). If you enjoy it, please write a comment or click like. Noah was super brave to narrate, as he's been working on his speech for a while.
