Well it's been sometime since I wrote any posts, this is because I went jet-setting for a few weeks. Coming home here to the island is very cold in comparison!
The turkeys have grown considerably, Spock is enormous and almost ready for dispatch (will we do it?? who knows), Humphrey doesn't seem to have grown as much, I wonder if that is due to Spock being dominant or perhaps Humphrey is a girl!!!!!!! Further investigation is required.
The Corsican (cockerel) is looking mighty fine and keeping his 3 girls under control. We now have plastic eggs in the hen house to try to encourage laying. The hens eat layers mash with extra corn and other grains for treats, they are also getting lots of veggies bits and bobs through each week. They all look very healthy, which I am pleased about.
The two dogs are fine and Ruffa now comes in for a time at night as it is getting very chilly. Only 2 degrees yesterday morning but today it should go up to about 14 degrees (ish). Apparently we are due snow on the mountains at about 1000m, I am keeping an eye out.
I can't believe it's December already. We have lettuces, cabbage, cauliflower and brussels growing at the moment, but we are battling with snails - very annoying, so most of the leaves are looking a bit sorry for themselves.
Preparations are now underway leading up to the Christmas period. Stay tuned....
