Yesterday Greg and Christina worked together on winterising the irrigation system in the orchard. Winterising apparently involved digging a hole which appears to be something every visitor experiences at the Ranch….fortunately for our new WWOOFER, this hole didn’t have to be filled in !
Mucking out the Sheep pen takes on a whole new meaning here at the ranch where Greg has devised a method of expediting the process to warp speed. A back pack leaf blower with a hurricane force blow doesn’t just blow leaves around here. Christina had a quick lesson in the fine art of blowing poo around and more importantly how to blow it into a controllable pile. All we need now is someone to use their initiative and work out how we can eliminate poo !!! (I wish !) Thank you Christina.
Christina also had a new “first” when Greg gave her an introduction to being a potential Speed Queen on the quad. Allegedly her first expression was shock….quickly followed by a very broad smile. We are looking forward to nearly three weeks of “firsts” and hope that she leaves our ranch with many happy memories and experiences (good ones !!)
Time to go take care keep safe. M
