As some of you may know we are still in drought. Ever since we moved though something funny has been going on. S has been sowing and every time he finishes a paddock it pours with rain. I'm thinking that it's down to him but then it always seems to coincide with me putting washing on my technologically advanced clothesline (pics to follow).

For anyone who is interested we are sowing oats (a late variety). Jack thinks we are growing oats for porridge (as you can see he's quite involved) but they will be used to make lambs nice and fat. Maybe we should undersow with rosemary?

alternative fuel? this tractor powered by chocolate biscuits

I know it looks clear and sunny in these photos, but hours later it was pouring with rain. The gumboots have been getting a real workout.

Nice new farmy design! I find chocolate baked goods make excellent fuel. See you tomorrow :)

Hehe I think we have the same level of coordination with the weather. Every time I use the dryer it's a beautiful day outside :P
