Today’s podcast covers permaculture principle 2 “Catch and Store Energy”.
We have all heard the saying “make hay while the sun shines” and this applies most directly to keeping and raising animals. Animals are a kinetic form of energy capture, transforming the hay and grain and scraps we feed them into other forms of energy more desirable to us (like eggs, meat, milk).
Listen to the podcast for a more in depth discussion of this topic.
As promised, I am including photos of some of the kids that have arrived at our homestead this year!
Some of the babies had weak fetlocks so I brought them into the house to put splints on them. The splints stay on only a few days and have already been removed and all babies walk just fine.
While they were inside I had to control their mess so we put diapers on them. The babies didnt seem to mind the diapers much at all.
We named this sweetheart “Peace”.
