PIG FEEDING 🐖.
.
When you do a fridge clean out and realise you have a few things at the end of their shelf life... rather than throw out, we took a bag of scraps over to the neighbours and fed the pigs! The kids love the variety of animals they get to see and feed!.
.
This is why country living is awesome! These will be the types of childhood memories they will have with them forever!.
.
Neighbours are more like family here for me and we are so lucky to have them round! Plus we are lucky that one of our neighbours is my father in law too!

On the alert....
This mother duck /nanny duck was looking after 17 very busy ducklings!

Check out my onion flower in the rain. Its one that started sprouting in the drawer in the kitchen so I decided to plant it and see what it did. The bit above the ground seems to be going well. I hope the bit under the ground is busy duplicating onions so I end up with more than I started with. I dont ever recall harvesting a "sprouted in the cuboard" onion before so we shall see what happens when I do! .

Today's project: more shelter for the goats. We have rain predicted for next weekend. Dragged the former pig house over then used t-posts, metal supports, and racks to extend and fortify. As I made a partial partition between two stalls, I thought about Tamsin Cooper's story in the Nov/Dec Goat Journal where she said goats like their personal space but don't want to be too closed in.

CHICK CHICK CHICKY 🐔.

We got 6 new girls last night for the coop!! The kids are over the moon about them and so am I because within 12 hours of getting them I had 5 eggs!! Can't compain with that!!.
.
We got some temporary nesting boxes from the neighbours to get them through for now until I decide exactly what I want. I'm still undecided on a pellet feeder for them too - which one is best?.

Imagine a garden path lined with these beautiful trees....

Such amazing colours!!

Before the sun got too hot I went out and took a few photos of the Frangipani’s growing around this area in the Pilbara...#devinefrangipani

Farm work done for the day, now off to town for a family lunch 🤗🍝🍷

Today’s photo challenge from #thankfulhomesteader is nature - well nature was rough today for us! We don’t normally get ice storms but we had one today - it’s foggy and drizzly out and everything has a layer of ice! ❄️❄️It’s beautiful to watch it all from our cozy house but no fun if you have to be out in it! 🌬🌨 #clothesline #homesteadinglife #ruralliving
