New year, new chicken run, new woodburner and a full (round) house5 Jan 2019
The first work day of 2019 was a great success, not necessarily because of the amount of work done (we did loads), but because almost every farm member was there, which makes it so much more enjoyable to be a part of and motivates everyone. Which led to a very full round house for lunch.
We even had a visitor and hopefully new member!
It makes a huge difference to the temperature in the roundhouse when we have a fire going in there, which is much appreciated during the winter months when we have either a coffee or lunch break. However at the end of last year the leg fell off our chiminea which had served us well given that it had been salvaged from a skip.
Harry, James and I (Stuart) constructed a new burner from an old gas bottle and a few bits of metal square tube.
Most people commented on the fact that our new burner actually seemed warmer than the old chiminea! Success!
We continued our chicken run, today concentrating on the floor.
We had a lot do in the fruit cage to prep for spring.
