Hong Kong connection

I forgot to post the picture of our three wwoofers from Hong Kong, who stayed with us for two weeks in July and left after having cooked a nice meal for us. The way they cook involves a lot of cutting tiny pieces of vegetables. They spent all day preparing this meal.

Rotten June

June was rotten. The weather was and still is terrible, it is cold and rainy. This is bad news for the garden and the farm. The potatoes are going to be a complete disaster, the tomatoes are all sick (potato blight) but many other things don't grow either. We have not been able to harvest a lot of hay yet and the quality is not getting better as time passes, the grass becomes to ripe and is more straw like. The animals have a lot of parasites (which love the wet weather).

We had some really disruptive wwoofers and let them stay much to long, but now they left.

Frida lost her puppies. She had to have a caesarian, but they were all dead.

Sounds gloomy, at least the tomatoes are hanging in there, at first I thought I would have to rip them out right away, but they just started to produce in earnest. I hope summer is finally showing up.

Phytoepuration pour la bergerie

Ces dernieres semaines Wilfried et son  equipe de la  maison naturelle de bourgogne on fait l'installation de la  phytoepuration pour la bergerie et on a planté les roseaux et jonc dans les bassins.


Cette semaine on va vraiment commencé le foin avec plus qu'un mois de retard. On a deja fauché quelques hectar mais le gros est encore a faire et cette semaine la meteo nous promis quelques jours de soleil.
