No time for work

“Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"” - Robin Williams

Sitting in my office in town (Hobart) and I'm just itching to be at home working on my spring-time 'to-do' list.
  • There's seedlings to be planted in the hot-house - cherry tomatoes, cucumber (burpless - whatever that means?), and capsicum.
  • The chooks need to have their legs painted with vegetable oil for scaly leg - a preventative measure for most of them, but the new one's have come with an existing problems which must be addressed.
  • The piglets (who the boys have named 'Wendy' and 'Peter Pan') also need smearing with oil to help deal with lice - I'm going to use vegetable oil but apparently sump oil is ideal.
  • We need to create a banner for the Royal Hobart Show which we are attending next week.. we're going to participate in a pavilion called 'Life on the farm', and it's an opportunity to showcase the Wessex Saddleback pigs.
  • Bambi (the rabbit) and her three gorgeous babies need to have their outside rabbit run built, near the raspberry patch.
  • Water, water, water - constantly on my mind - how to deliver it, catch it, save it - we need a long term plan which addresses the needs of the garden, us, and the animals.
  • and.. as spring has truly sprung... the lawn needs mowing....

It's going to be a busy few months - I just don't have time for work!
