It has been a bit of time since writing.
This winter has been particularly cold (unlike last year). We haven't had any snow down on the ground in Sa Pobla, although I know there has been some in other parts of the island. The mountains had LOADS of snow dumped on them, and the chill winds blow freezing air off them down to our town! brrrrrrrrrrr!!

On to the animals... The hens are all grown up and laying well. Our cockerel is growing enormous but luckily is still friendly. I haven't heard him crow very well yet, but I have heard him trying, which seems to be a strange mix of a gurgle/strangling sound and a yodle! The dogs are fine except Ruffa Roo seems rather sick today - no food for him tonight and we will see how he is in the morning.
We still have no vegetables growing, we will see what the next few weeks brings.
Hope to post again very soon.
