According to the ning folks, our website should now be running properly. I know it's been terrible for some of us for the last two weeks. Can you please reply below if you are still having…Continue

I worked out that many of my quails are 2 years old or more. That's ancient for quail. Rather than let the old birds die, I really should cull them while they can be eaten.

Couldn't find a July update to ... um.. update... so I've started a new one.
I've been fighting my infrastructure here on the tiny farm for around two months now. My roof leaked in the first East Coast Low. I got it fixed but waited for the second low to make sure it was right. Then, they ripped up the inside of my house to fix the ceilings. I took the opportunity to swap to all my lights to LED bulbs while the scaffolding was up.
Until the last two days, the solar system…Continue
