Went outside to check on the garden🌱 and piggy 🐷. The potatoes are thriving! I can't wait to harvest them! My tomato 🍅 plants are taking off! The pig 🐖 is doing just fine, getting huge as well! The hubby is getting the plot ready for some planting! Thinking corn 🌽 in the ground sometime soon. I didn't even bother to get out of my pjs, because why not?!
We’ve been a bit quiet this month. What with living off grid for a couple of weeks followed by long days of kiwi fruit picking, it’s just sort of happened. An impromptu but well needed break from our devices to enjoy the very real N O W that’s going on around us (because it’s possible without posting about it, apparently?!)
We’ve been kiwi fruit picking in Katikati for just over a week & it’s been surprisingly, um, fun? We’ve made so many new friends, our bodies have built new muscles, we’ve eaten A LOT of kiwis & picked hundreds of thousands of fruit between us 🥝🥝🥝 (no exaggeration - we’ve done the maths!)
We’re currently living in the van on a kiwi orchard with a dozen other weird & wonderful people from all over the world & will be working here for another couple of weeks to save enough pennies to continue travelling south for winter.

羊もそれぞれのようです。可愛い❤️ Finally... we have started feeding hay to our cattle and pet lambs!
No rain!!! We need rain!!! Local farmers are now selling their stock and cut the number off or buying expensive hay.
By the way, these pet lambs have never eaten hay.
I'm against to farms that they didn't follow the rules in the law and human rights. I will not hesitate to quit from that shitty place.
If they expected from me that do not complain to them, if this is the reason they prefer Asian than European, fuck them all.
They need ppl and we need to extend our visa.
So we need each other. I don't understand why they treat us like a slaves. I won't accept that.
So yes, now I'm a jobless. But I'm proud of myself more than any time.
Let just enjoy for free time. 👽
Cheers all of the farm workers.
We deserve it better than this. (*I worked in 4 different farms till now, 2 of the farm was so nice place to work. I really appreciate them. But the others.. I won't mention it but I'm sure that's illegal and unfair)
What do you do on a bright sunny day when you get a surprise visit from your strapping young nephew? You greet him warmly of course..and immediately put a broadfork in his hand. Thanks Blake Cherry and Desire Jones for the visit! #surprise#broadfork#nephew#farmwork#deep#soil#work
Wire weeder in action 💪🏼 This guy gets the weeds when they’re really young, even before you can see them 🧐 using it does mean we have to really work on our spacing and (almost) straight lines 🌱 couple this with not tilling the beds and weed pressure is so low in our tunnels at the moment 🥳 on the subject of tools, has anyone (in Australia) got any broadfork recommendations? I can’t see many options other than @activevistagram, are we going with you guys?! The all steel one certainly looks the part 👀
