Well, the bottles found in the attic have scrubbed up really well. We are assuming they are demijohns, they are about three gallons in old money. In the UK we would maybe plant small tropical plants in there. We will no doubt find some use for them eventually.
The chickens are doing ok. We are still getting the odd softy, but the other day there was a lovely collection of seven eggs from seven hens.
They had spaghetti as well yesterday, for the first time. They were totally underwhelmed. We have been led to believe that chickens get excited over spaghetti as it looks like worms, but of course we hadn't tested the theory in the UK as feeding kitchen scraps is banned by DEFRA. Either worms are not common (no surprise at this time of the year) or they would rather have sauce on it. They ate it eventually.
Dave is definitely getting better at not throwing anything away, unlike in the past. All things just might have a new life, including the skeleton of a parasol which only lasted a few weeks. I came across a little stash of off cuts of wood in the cellar. Very tidy.
