Farmer Shell

Mr. Munro and I had a busy weekend. Hubby went fishing on Saturday, leaving me in peace to do some writing. Job done since I completed the short project I’ve been working on recenty. Mr. Munro arrived home with lots of fish (guess what we had for dinner?) and we headed off to the farm for a working bee.

We spent a couple of hours fixing fences and trimming trees and vines. We were exhausted by the time we finished and I was covered with sheep poop. A shower never felt so good!

Shell and Farm Bike

This is me on the farm bike. :grin:

I purchased another mushroom farm from the local farmers’ market. The mushrooms taste so much better than the ones we buy at the supermarket. I thought my farm had stopped producing but this morning when I woke up several more mushrooms have popped up. I think they like the extra hot weather we’ve been having recently.

Mushroom Farm

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago when I first got my mushroom farm. The current batch of mushrooms are really small but they grow quickly and should be to this stage soon.

How was your weekend?

    I really love the mushroom farm and if I could find one around here I would buy one too. I love fresh mushrooms.

    Great pic of you on the farm bike.

    Hi Shelley :)
    Love the picture of you on the 4 wheeler.
    Sounds like an amazing weekend!
    (I’m a little jealous – There’s a foot of snow here)
    Love & Best Wishes to you & yours,

    Mary, it’s fun watching the mushrooms grow. They double in size overnight.

    Rob – we’ve had a dry spell here. It’s been much warmer than usual. It was certainly hot fixing the fence. We stapled heavy logs to the bottom of the fence to stop the pigs and sheep from taking shortcuts underneath. The logs were really heavy. I’m glad I don’t play farmer every day.

    The mushroom farm is so cool. I should try that during the summer…I hope you got some rest in as well…

    I want one of those 4 wheelers so badly. Hubby has one, but that’s just for playing. I need one to haul feed and supplies.

    It looks like you had fun even though you were working.

    Savannah – I love my mushroom farm. I’ve always wanted to try growing mushrooms and snapped a bucket up when I saw them at the market.

    Maria – this is definitely a work vehicle. My father and sister use it all the time. It helps them tote anything from posts to bails of hay.
