a new way in (well sort of)

Finally! Finally! Finally!
We have our entrance sign! So when you come to visit this is what now will greet you at the top of the driveway.  Hopefully the cows will leave the plants alone and they will grow into lovely big plants.

busy times

As this is my birthday month I had grand plans of posting on my blog each day - but of course best laid plans.......
Here on the farm we have been really struggling.  Our feed for the cattle has not grown as we expected and Gary has been quite down about it.  Its been hard to work out what to do - but finally we ARE doing something.  Two paddocks behind the dairy that we laughingly call the "show paddock" (mainly as they are so terrible!) have been disced and lasered and hopefully will have seed (rye grass) spread on them today.
So if you are one of the many that pray for us - please continue to do so - we really need this grass to grow - we dont want to sell up or move away and believe we are meant to be here.
