Preparing to move house is always stressful, no more so than with 35 days remaining before you need to be out of (what you thought of as) your home. More difficult, still, is organising where the assortment of livestock will be temporarily housed, in the event everything goes horribly wrong and we find ourselves homeless. But the ducks don't know about any of this. All the ducks know is that there were seven of them a couple of weeks ago and now there are only two. We rehomed four and then we had the sad and sudden death of dear little Monica.
In preparation for vacating this address, we've begun deconstructing everything in the garden. This means the hens and ducks can now access what used to be the raised vegetable bed. It also doubled up for Square Foot Gardening. It's almost northerly facing, so we edged it with mirrors in order to catch every available ray of sunshine during summer.
This morning, Joey and Phoebe discovered the mirrors!
