“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

Two Minutes

It always amazes me how quickly our sky changes as the sun rises.  Some mornings, if you blink, you miss the drama.  Yesterday was one such morning.  We had an amazing show for two minutes and then it was gone as quickly as it began.

I was so happy we had the chance to witness the splendor.  To me, it's the best start to any day.  

On our early morning trip to the duck pond, we were surprised to find 51 ducks happily swimming around awaiting their breakfast.  I think we have now attracted most of the ducks in the county!

Seeing Hope yesterday morning reminded me of the saying... "to pull the wool over one's eyes".

Our sheep get incredibly messy in the winter time.  They are seriously the dirtiest animal on the farm.  The donkeys would be mortified to look so disheveled!


This autumn we added a couple new game cameras to our Hundred Acre Wood.  Instead of setting them for photos (which are snapped with motion) we set them for video capture.  Here is that video from the past 5 days. 

If the video does not show above, you can find it HERE.
