It's always nice to see deer around. This one is in our neighbour's field. We see more wildlife there than our own place, as it is a large open field, that we overlook.
And then I remembered the eaten off raspberry canes, pole bean and peas in the orchard garden.
Begone, you damn pest!
Oooh, nice extended trot.
Can you tell I used to ride horses?
And here's why we need to put in a higher fence.
Actually, the blood meal I have been tossing around seems to work, as long as I remember to reapply it occasionally. And now I am putting it on the leaves of some new beans, to try discourage the rabbits.
There was a rabbit in the back yard this morning.
The dogs didn't even see it, and I had to encourage them to go after it.
I need to convince them to catch their own raw food.
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, British Columbia. We are vendors at the White Rock Farmer's market, selling a large variety of items. These include jams, jellies and marmalades, sewn items, free range eggs, cut flower bouquets, fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit. We grow organically, although are not certified organic. As of summer 2017, our hobby farm houses 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 ewe, and 80-99 laying hens.
