With the glorious sound of rain falling on our roof, it is extremely pleasant to take refuge inside with a steaming mug of happiness. Well, after feeding the calves and repairing the tractor…. and buying some more bags of feed for the calves…. and making sure the tank inlets are clear of debris to ensure every drop is making its way into our tanks.
As I write, we have 13mm of steady beautiful rain in the gauge – just perfect timing after our big fall a fortnight ago. All the established grass responded to the last fall and has been growing well, but the clover and other grass that germinated was just about to curl up and die. This might be enough to get some good feed on the ground before it gets too cold to grow.
A day inside is never wasted, it is a wonderful opportunity to delve back into the books and online to find stories that inspire and motivate. It is even better when one of those stories is about an old school mate, Michael.
I hope you have 12 minutes or so to enjoy the story of Taylor’s Run and how trees have not only made their property more beautiful and diverse, but profitable, especially in this drought. I am exceptionally lucky to count this fella as a mate, and look forward to dropping in to check out what his family is achieving on our next drive through the New England.
