I love working at The Farm. It is always fun and a bit bonkers and unexpected things tend to happen. I especially love the animals, each and every one of them. Well not quite. Today Slasher Shorn said to me “I used to love chickens until I came to work here”, glad it’s not just me. These are evil chucks, they have no fear, take no instruction, they hunt in packs and with their demonic claws rip plants out of the ground leaving them to suffocate and shrivel in the sun. Where they have learnt this bad behaviour I could not hazard a guess.
Just as I was leaving this evening Mrs G walked up the lane towards me holding some raggedly vegetation in her mitts. “I have dug up the docks” she proudly informed me. My face in a rictus grin said “Those are the verbascum that I planted last week”.
Is there any hope?
The salvias are doing well.
