"We must achieve the character and acquire the skills to live much poorer than we do. We must waste less. We must do more for ourselves and for each other. It is either that or continue merely to think and talk about changes that we are inviting catastrophe to make. The great obstacle is simply this: the conviction that we cannot change because we are dependant on what is wrong. But that is the addict's excuse, and we know that it will not do."

The monthly update

I just realised the last two posts have no pictures from the cloud farm. So here is a monthly update in pictures. Photography by the littlest cloud farmer.
 We slaughtered the meat chooks. Here are two on their way to the plucker, (don't worry they are already dead).
 A photo of Dads bum, I have no idea why...
 Working the plucker. Made a few minor modifications and it now operates flawlessly. Most pleased.
Is this thing working?
 Morning feed for the layers. I think Rhode Island Reds are the most beautiful of any chook.
 Rufus' Dog house. Unfortunately he prefers to sleep under the house.
Shadows need to be photographed too.
Communing with the pigeons at the morning feed. They are becoming very tame.
 Waiting for the morning feed.
