The first pictures of our new turkey babies:
If you look closely you can see they are just making an appearance…we didn’t want to disturb them or frighten them by getting too close.
They are now a bit bigger and mum is taking them outside for daily walks…However, we have a young puppy and he has very quickly learnt to keep his distance he got too inquisitive and mum got quite angry with him ..apparently jumped on him and made him squeal and sent him on his way… Natures way of giving a clip around the ear… Methinks!
Our black baby chicks are getting quite big now…They are quite beautiful and hand tame…
One of the turkey mums has opted to lay on her eggs outside she didn’t like the new home we have made for them so we will leave her in peace to hatch her babies where she wants…Sometimes nature knows best…
On the fruit and vegetable side….the kale is looking very nice and much better than the markets and lasts a good few days when it is picked.
The young coconut trees are doing well but it will be a few more years before they fruit. The Papaya tree has many fruits so lots of Som Tam(Papaya Salad)…A LOVELY yummy recipe for you 🙂 Just click the link 🙂
The Jackfruit trees are full of fruit so it looks like a bumper crop this year… To read all about the Jack Fruit on WEDNESDAY on my food column on Smorgasbord… Click here to read last weeks post 🙂
Bananas as always are plentiful…
Our babies are now growing well… A little bigger and venturing out for a walk with mum keeping a watchful eye on them.
That’s all for now Down on the Farm my timer has just gone off…The ham is ready..there is nothing better than home-cured ham is there??
Until next time..enjoy your weekend and laugh a lot xx
