  • I’m in a women’s leadership workshop through my job every day this week; from 8am to 6pm...in a windowless conference room. While I’m learning and feeling inspired by so many strong women, my introverted side is struggling to stay engaged all week. As soon as I get home, I’m ready for bed, but it’s barely 7pm 😩
.
Weeks like this really make me appreciate the life I’m building outside of work; the animals I come home to reenergize me and give me a purpose more than any job ever has. It reaffirms my decision to try to build a career out of my farm so that I can feel this passion daily...and give up those weeks in a windowless conference rooms.

  • "Let's go outside and be tough together," Edge said. ❄️💪🥕 The snow might have started falling before all the carrots were out of the ground, but that sentence was enough to push me past cold fingers and the lure of one more cup of tea after lunch.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You don't get to choose the weather, but you do get to choose how you show up.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's always some amount of discomfort in farming, but whatever cold hours we spend outside now will be returned in warming soup and hearty meals all winter long.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So show up, harvest, and keep those cozy days ahead in mind.  A good podcast also helps — @armchairexppod kept me fully distracted from the cold.

  • Spent the morning picking flowers, well grass and trees should I say, chasing chickens and watching the sun escape the hold of the clouds. Perfect way to start my Sunday morning. 
What are your views on picked flowers? I never buy picked flowers from the shops anymore as I feel it is environmentally unsustainable... I love picking off the farm as there is everything in abundance and pruning a small amount every month only allows space for growth.

  • I was bemoaning that my indoor veggie area lacked something this morning, so we came up with the idea of hanging some old jarrah pieces that we have laying around... instant charm. 
The block of wood in photo 2 will be a base for my tiny elk horns to grow against. The long bit of wood by the door in photo 3 will have bromeliads tied to them.
I had to re stain my potting table with linseed oil also.
Thanks @johnnyjaxun for doing this for me today 🖤

  • WWOOFing。⁣
⁣
喺Christchurch安頓幾日之後,出發北上到Picton搭船,喺Wellington留咗兩晚,諗住感受下Halloween嘅氣氛(最後都無),然後落腳喺Palmerston North附近一個鄉下家庭WWOOFing。換宿係我同S初相識時嘅約定,黎到差不多最尾一個月,搵到個host好爽快答應咗收留我哋,終於實現。⁣
⁣
呢一家人係北愛爾蘭+愛爾蘭組合,有爸媽L&B,家姐(17),呀哥(16),細佬(14)同妹妹(9),仲有兩隻狗P&H,一隻貓,一隻牛,一隻鴨(仲有兩隻唔知做咩嘅羊同一大堆雞&鴨)。我哋嘅任務係每朝8點帶隻牛去牛棚,用一部古老機器揸哂佢嘅奶,然後到L嘅花園幫手除草,播種,施肥等等直到食午飯,之後就睇佢哋幾兄弟姊妹有咩搞,自由活動一下。⁣
⁣
L係個極度崇尚自然嘅媽媽,盡量咩都自給自足自己整無添加blablabla,家中4個細路都係homeschooling,從小就要分擔家頭細務,非常自律同成熟。L家有好多好嚴嘅規矩,例如細路喺屋企基本上禁網,睇電影要經審查,無自己嘅手提電話,連17歲嘅家姐(啱啱開始出城市返大學)都無任何social media account,全家人嘅娛樂就係睇書,玩音樂(個個都識樂器,真country music),種嘢,親親大自然,運動等。奇怪嘅係,封閉之下嘅佢哋唔似係被逼,而且一家人關係亦好好,某日同S傾起,佢話:“咁其實咪同中共一樣?”。後尾同佢哋熟咗,襯L不在,問咗家姐,原來佢哋真係自願嘅,仲話拍拖的話男方要問准佢老豆,事關佢哋跟從一種Conservative Christian嘅生活方式。⁣
⁣
逗留一星期,見識咗呢種特別嘅農村生活方式,亦學咗不少有趣嘅嘢:揸奶,整牛油,整芝士,種下蕃茄,調理農務。每晚聽住雞啼咁瞓,聞住牛屎味食飯,日頭熱到唔敢返入房,無瞓過一覺好嘅,病足咁多日。爽嘅係唔洗煮飯,食佢哋嘅地道素(咁啱佢哋成家除咗B,都係ovo-vegetarians),跟佢哋去下河邊玩水加kayaking,又嘗試踩單車踩到腳軟,某日mood到走去打網球,偷偷哋整杯面食(唔敢比L發現)。最後一日因為佢哋朋友就結婚,過嚟英國式High Tea預埋我哋,直落晚飯狂飲酒,我哋又包餃子加埋S嘅小炒皇炒面比佢哋食,個個大讚。連之前六日無同我哋講過一句嘢嘅B都吹哂水,又猛叫我留低話咩工程好缺人(佢本人係civil eng)。⁣
⁣
短短七天,每日工作,三餐,活動,傾談,到走嘅時候,係有點兒不捨得呢一家人,同埋呢種家嘅感覺,而S就最唔捨得係狗仔P同妹妹。⁣
⁣
佢哋嘅生活就好似NZ嘅平行時空,而我仍然喺呢度,就好似香港嘅平行時空咁,並唔係咁容易。⁣
⁣
p.s. 妹妹問:"What? You work on your birthday?"⁣
⁣
“吾十有五而志于學,三十而立,四十而不惑,五十而知天命,六十而耳順,七十而從心所欲,不逾矩。” - 孔子⁣

We're definitely going to continue experimenting with growing mushrooms and get deeper into the amazing world of mycology 🙌

  • 👋Воспоминания навеянные варениками .
.
.
В детстве каникулы я проводила у бабушки, а она, как полагается любой ба, любила кормить внуков 😁 Меня с братом и двух двоюродных. Но я ела мало (сейчас наверстываю упущенное 😅) и бабушка, да и родители тоже, с этим смирилась и не заставляла 😊 .
.
.
Но не смотря на это, я часто просила бабушку приготовить вареники. На парУ, пышные, вкусные... Особенно я любила с вишней 😋😍 И вот простоит бабушка у плиты не один час, поставит на стол. Усядусь я мелкая, съем один и... Все! Больше не лезет! А все потому что бабушка делала до оеб...ия крупные вареники 🙈 Вот серьезно, один съел и целый день сытый 😂
.
.
.
Начали мы просить, чтоб она готовила более мелкие. Выпросили 😄До сих пор варит она их среднего размера 😋 Идеально в общем 😁
.
.
.
Прошли годы, стала я жить с Гришей, начала учиться готовить... В общем, мои вареники еще больше, чем те, бабушкины из детства 😅 Размером с пирожок что ли 😁😅 И сколько я не пробовала делать небольшие, получилась жуткая фигня 😅 Даже лепиться не хотели 🙄 Но Гриша этому и рад 🤗
.
.
.
Большие так большие. Так казалось до одного дня. К нам приехали гости. И решили мы на всю немаленькую толпу наготовить вареников. Помочь мне их лепить вызвались два мужика 😅 Мол, всегда хотели этому научиться 🙈 Шо я вам хочу сказать... Я вернулась в детство 😂😂😂 Это были те самые "один съел и наелся "😅
.
.
.
Это я к чему веду... А ни к чему 😂 Всем добра и вареников 😁
.
.
.
Пы.сы. что-то у меня зачастили фото еды 😅😂

Sheep dogs 🐕 have long been a part of farm life, but technology is beginning to enter the domain. A new drone has been adopted by some farmers in New Zealand 🇳🇿.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With the ability to both check on livestock 🐑 without disturbing them and move them when necessary, it can save humans and sheep dogs a lot of effort. The drone can even play loud sounds 🔊 like a dog's bark to scare off 😨 any predators. Ultimately, it promises to give sheep dogs an easier life and save farmers money 💸 in the long run.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever used a drone? If you have, what did you use it for?
