Lots of action here on the farm this morning. Strain on pipes has led to the digging up of a good portion of the yard.
On a happier note, under the bushes near the front steps, PennyMay the duck has at least 5 little ducklings that hatched overnight. Rosie the kitten is very fascinated with the babies and just barely escaped a sharp peck on the nose from one very protective mother duck.
It’s very sad to see the lovely green grass being dug up, though I know it’s necessary. Antidote to such sadness? Baking of course. I’ll spend the afternoon baking bread in the cooking school.
