[This is an old post I found in my drafts folder, but I like the photos so I figured I’d publish it as it is.]
Kids love hay bales. This is the second cut of lucerne hay from the Newman/Costanza fields and was super green.
This is border fence done the Gascon way with cut down old acacia vine posts and two steel electric wires. To be hard core the post would be about half the thickness, falling over and would only have a single wire, but we like to sleep at night. Behind are the sunflowers of one neighbor and the vines of another. You can see the single-wire perimeter fence in between.
ZQ and the Agricultrix checking out the mass of blackberries by the orchard. Jean sneaks out most mornings to spend some time chopping up blackberries before the family gets going. No baby, no husband, no big kids, just a pile of weeds and a brushcutter.
