Getting summer ready

Although the hot weather really hadn't started yet. You can see it's really dry here 
Getting water to the stock is hard work. But now the new back fence is done and the door is better positioned we have put a bathtub close so I can at least keep one full constantly 


View from the old permaculture area. With me being sick all these last years  it's all gone. 
Breaks my heart really 
But you can see the back hose reaches easily. So it's not hard to fill the tub 
And the view from the outdoor covered area 
I can see instantly if they have water 
Hopefully we get rain occasionally during the summer months 
See ya xxx


  1. That bathtub makes a dandy stock tank! How handy is that?

    1. Yup. And easy to clean just a quick scrub and pull the plug, rinse and refill. Easy

  2. Just make sure the plug fits and doesn't leak - unlike the one for my bath. Nothing worse than having a lovely soak and hearing the water trickling down the drain :)
    One of these days I'll get down to the big green barn and buy a new one lol

  3. Looks like a much better set up now for you to keep the tub filled. Hope the weather doesn't get too hot down your way...sometimes the temps in Victoria get higher than here 😳
